Inventory Management

You can track the components, snapshots, and configurations deployed to any resource by using the inventory management features provided in Deployment Automation.

Only the latest process request is added to the inventory, rewriting all previous ones. Operational process types are not added to the inventory.

You can view inventory information on Inventory tabs in several places in the user interface, including the following:

  • The Deployment page
  • A selected component: shows applications and resources with that component
  • A selected resource: shows the current inventory of component versions for that resource and the configuration inventory, which includes properties for all levels for that resource
  • An application environment's details: shows component version inventory within each resource for that environment; you can toggle the view to see versions by component or by resource
  • A selected environment: shows component version inventory for each application environment based on this environment; you can click the link in the Environment column of an inventory item to go to the application environment view

Inventory statuses can be used to associate more meaningful information with the component versions shown in the resource inventory.

To compare the inventory of two environments, see Comparing Environments.
