Set a CI field to be mandatory

Configure a CI field as mandatory so it is included in the CMDB Health tests for the required metric if enabled. Required is a metric of the CMDB Health completeness KPI.

About this task

When a field is configured as mandatory, then if the required metric is enabled, the CMDB health tests check whether that field is populated or not. The CMDB dashboard displays the aggregated report of the percentage of CIs for which one or more required fields is empty.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Configuration > CI Class Manager.
  2. Select a class from the Class Hierarchy.
  3. Select Fields on the right-side bar.
  4. In the Table Columns tab, select a table column.
  5. In the Dictionary Entry form, select the Mandatory check box.
  6. Click Update.
    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.
