Issue/Introduction


Can you please outline the requirements for the reconciliation of Spectrum devices that were manually discovered in CAPM?

I recently added a few devices and I am trying to map those to a custom group based on their Spectrum global collection membership.

For instance - ClientA_rtr1 was discovered manually into CAPM. This router is also present in a Spectrum global collection called ClientA.

In CAPM, under Groups > Inventory > Data Sources > Spectrum > All Global Collections, I can see the "ClientA" global collection but the manually discovered device ClientA_rtr1 does not show up there

Environment

CA Performance Management 3.5 and later

Resolution

Here is in general, how the sync between CAPM and Spectrum works:

1) We sync an IP Domain to Spectrum 

2) Spectrum creates the IP Domain Glocal Collection (GC)

3) Users put devices into the IP Domain GC and those devices get synced to PC 

Any other GC in Spectrum that contains these devices in IP Domain GC are also synced BUT only the devices/interfaces from the IP Domain GC, not ALL the members of the GC. 

Once you add devices to the "Default Domain" global collection in Spectrum, they appear in the CAPC groups as well.
