Creating an edit view

Asset Management Suite

When you open the page to create or edit a configuration item, the default edit view opens. On the default edit view, you can specify information for all the data class attributes that apply to this configuration item type. On the default edit view, you can also create all associations that are possible for this configuration item type. If you do not need to insert some data or you prefer to insert the data in a different order, you can edit the default views. You can also create new views.

Customized edit views let you simplify and speed up the process of creating and editing configuration items by enabling you to control which fields and options are displayed.

When you create a data class and edit a view to use in a virtual association, the column names must be ParentResourceGuid and ChildResourceGuid to avoid errors.

This task is a step in the process for managing configuration items.
