Preparing

You should import your data in the following order:

  1. Virtualization Clusters
  2. Servers
  3. Database Instances
  4. Applications

This order is especially important if you are planning to import dependencies for your Databases and Applications. Ie. If your Application has a dependency on a server, you need to have that server imported first for the dependency to be imported correctly.

You should have one sheet or file per type of record.

There are several default columns included for each record type, however if you have additional information you can add fields for a record and also track those. If this is the case you should do this before you import your data.

Importing your data

  • Select the data type you wish to import.
  • Select the sheet in your file that you want to import data from.
  • Map the columns of your sheet to the fields from the drop down. If you have a column that is not present as a field and you want to import it, you can add that field.
  • Click submit to import the data.
