Change verification governs inbound CI data before loading the data into the CMDB. This verification helps ensure that each requested Change Order executes correctly, and detects and manages rogue changes automatically. Change verification lets you perform the following tasks:
  • Authoritative MDR Updates
    Specifies that MDRs can only update authoritative attributes at the attribute level.
  • Rogue Change Detection
    Detects and manages updates to CIs when no corresponding Change Order exists.
  • Change Verification
    Provides automated verification that Change Orders executed correctly.
Change verification policies can be implemented dynamically or scheduled in advance. They can be generic or highly specific.
