Evaluation order for Discovery identifiers

Custom identifiers must have different Order values than those of the default identifiers.

Discovery parses identifiers and attributes in sequence from low order numbers to high. You can create identifiers to run before or after the default identifiers, or mixed in with the identifiers from the base system. To prevent any identifier or rule from running, disable it by clearing the Active check box.

CMDB identifier order values

The evaluation order for CMDB identifiers is established within each rule and only controls the parsing order of the attributes in that rule.

Legacy identifier order values

The evaluation order for legacy identifiers is defined for each identifier in the system.
