Outline

COSMOS defines a set of web-based components that provides access to the underlying COSMOS services. These web-based components can be configured and integrated with each other to create a very dynamic web based application.

Each component carries out one of the following basic action.

  • Navigate - components that help the end user locate a data manager within the COSMOS system
  • Query - components that builds and submits queries to a data manager
  • View - components that visualizes information from a data manager
  • Manage - components that manages a data manager
  • Utility - components that provide utility functions

CMDBf Query Builder Dialog

Purpose: This web based component provides a dialog box to construct a CMDBf query document and submit the constructed document to a MDR. Users familiar with the CMDBf query document structure can use this dialog box to construct a CMDBf query document instead of hand typing the document. The query builder processes the service meta data from an MDR to determine what kind of query capabilities the user is allowed to specify.
