Discovery CI schedule manager

The Discovery CI schedule manager provides a summary of discoveries that were triggered from Configuration Item schedules during the last 30 days.

Use the schedule manager to access a report of all discovered devices, see any errors that might have occurred, and view discovery trends. A CI schedule discovery is the type of discovery that is triggered from a Discovery schedule, where the Discover field is set to Configuration Items. The Discovery CI Schedule Manager only displays information for these Configuration Item (CI) discoveries. It does not display information for the other types of discovery. See Schedule horizontal discovery for details.
