Issue/Introduction

I imported some inventory items into UIM using the Inventory section of the Operator Console. I used the example available at D:\Nimsoft\probes\service\cm_data_import\schema\example1MaximalDevice to build the following XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<CmData 
    xmlns="http://nimsoft.com/2014/05/cm-data-import2"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <Devices>
        <Device>
<Label>VM0DWSEKOUA0004</Label>
    <Description>2019 Test Server for SERVICE REQUEST 1631877</Description>
    <PrimaryDnsName>VM0XXXXXXXX0004.corp.chartercom.com</PrimaryDnsName>
    <PrimaryIPV4Address>22.XXX.X.NNN</PrimaryIPV4Address>
    <PrimaryMacAddress></PrimaryMacAddress>
    <OtherMacAddresses></OtherMacAddresses>
    <PrimaryOSType>Windows</PrimaryOSType>
    <PrimaryOSVersion>2019</PrimaryOSVersion>
    <ProcessorType></ProcessorType>
    <Vendor>VMware</Vendor>
    <Model>Virtual Machine (VMWare)</Model>
    <PhysSerialNumber></PhysSerialNumber>
    <PrimaryDeviceRole>Server</PrimaryDeviceRole>
    <PrimarySoftwareRole>Unassigned</PrimarySoftwareRole>
       </Device>
    </Devices>
</CmData>

The data imported successfully, but I cannot see any reference to the bold fields above in UIM.  I looked in the database in cm_computer_system, and I do not see any reference to that data.

Where is this information written for imported devices in the UIM database?

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - CM_DATA_IMPORT

Resolution

The values should be in the CM_COMPUTER_SYSTEM_ATTR table. Use valid enumerated values as described in the enum files in the cm_data_import directory.
 
You can use a query similar to this to view the imported data:

select distinct cs_attr_key, cs_attr_value
from CM_COMPUTER_SYSTEM_ATTR
where cs_attr_key like '%PrimaryRole%' or cs_attr_key = 'Vendor' or cs_attr_key = 'label'

 

For those optional properties, highlighted in bold, such as Description, Vendor, PrimaryDeviceRole, etc., it looks like you are limited to using the values that are listed in the *openenums.xml file(s). For example:

...\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\probes\service\cm_data_import\schema\usm-openenums.xml

or cm-data-import-openenums.xml

For example for 'Vendor'

<usm-meta:EnumDetails enumName="VendorEnum">
<usm-meta:Documentation>An explicit list of hardware and software vendor names.</usm-meta:Documentation>
<usm-meta:EnumValue value=".netcart" shouldBeTranslated="false"/>
<usm-meta:EnumValue value="1E" shouldBeTranslated="false"/>
<usm-meta:EnumValue value="1st benison" shouldBeTranslated="false"/>
