Configure a CI field as mandatory so it is included in the CMDB Health tests for the
required metric if enabled. Required is a
sub-metric of the CMDB Health completeness metric.
When a field is configured as mandatory, the CMDB health tests check whether the
field is populated or not. The CI dashboard then displays the number of required
fields that are left empty. The CMDB dashboard displays the aggregated report of the
percentage of CIs for which one or more required fields is empty.
Select a class from the Class Hierarchy.
Select Fields on the right-side bar.
Select a table column.
In the Dictionary form, select the
Mandatory check box.
The next time the form is opened, a field status indicator appears next to
the field label, indicating that a value is mandatory.
Note: Mandatory fields are global. The field is marked as mandatory
everywhere it appears in a form.
