Creating a custom data class

A data class can be visualized as a table in the Configuration Management Database (CMDB). Each data class has a set of attributes that define its properties. When you create a data class, you can customize it by adding, editing, and deleting its attributes.

After you create a custom data class, you can add it to a predefined configuration item type or to a custom configuration item type that you create.

See Creating a custom configuration item type.

To create a custom data class

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click All Settings.

  2. In the left pane, expand Notification Server > Resource and Data Class Settings > Data Classes > CMDB Data Classes, right-click the folder where you want to create a custom data class, and then click New > Editable Data Class.

  3. On the New Editable Data Class page, give the data class a name and add the attributes.

    The name of the database table that is linked to the data class is created from the name of this data class. It begins with the prefix Inv_ followed by the data class name. The spaces in the data class name are replaced with the underscore character. Note that the table name persists even if you later change the name of the data class.

    Symantec recommends that you do not use special characters in the custom data class names because they may cause errors.

  4. Click Save changes.
