Tracking the associations of a configuration item

Asset Management Suite

The Resource Association Diagram displays a graphic that shows a configuration item and all its associated configuration items. The Resource Association Diagram lets you view relationships between assets, users, locations, departments, and cost centers. In a large environment, this graphic makes it easier to track down an asset and its dependencies. For example, when a technician works on an incident and needs to review all of the details about the asset.

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

See Managing configuration items
