Table form views

When you view a table definition form, you can open the context menu, and select a form view in which to display the table. The default view for a table is the Default view. For any class that is an extension of the CMDB table, you can select the CI Definition view which provides additional access to related tables and information.

The CI Definition form view is a centralized location from which you can configure and view a table. In addition to the information that the default view displays, the CI Definition form view provides the following controls,

Control Description
Icon tab View and create new NG-BSM icons for CI types
CI Identifier tab View and create new CI identifiers
Reconciliation Definitions tab View and create new data source definitions
Inclusion related link Links to the Service Rules Metadata Editor

To access these additional controls on the CI Definition form view, you need to first create a new table that is derived from the CMDB table, and then view it using the CI Definition form.
