    Does discovery_server/scripts folder lua script help in correlation ?

    If yes can give some example or cases where it helps ?

    Currently I am using override eval_name.lua to just change the ip address, FQDN, upper case name to lower case short host name so it displays as intended in USM as short host name.

     

    I am running UIM 8.5 , discovery_server and discovery agent version 8.5.

    Hi, lua helps in processing the coming inventory data, but does not directly affect correlation (how processed inventory data gets correlated)

    Hi Gene,

     

    Can't find much in information in the link 8.51.

    Is correlation dependent on the data in cm_device and cm_device_attribute collected and does the lua script change the cm_device_attribute values ?

    The script did not modify cm_device table dev_attribute_value there is also a readme.txt in the scripts folder stating the lua scripts is used to override the values that are stored in the CM_COMPUTER_SYSTEM database.
