Insight -- Possibility to synchronize Object Types on the same Server



Short question....

I have two Schemas on the same Insight-Server, one called “IT Management” and one called “Information Security Management”




The “IT Management” is my Main Schema, the “Information Security Management” is a Schema for another employee. Inside the “IT Management” Schema, there are different Object Types with many Objects, for example Object Type “Computer Corporate” with Objects like “CT-4432000130” or “CT-4432000131” and the corresponding Attributes like “Name” or “Location” or “Owner”



The Schema “Information Security Management” have also Object Types like “Desktop PC`s” or “Notebooks” with Objects like “CT-4432000130” or “CT-4432000131” and the corresponding Attributes like “Name” or “Location” or “Owner”.




My question now, is it possible, if I changed some Attributes in the Main Schema “IT Management”, for Example, I changed the Attribute “Owner” in the Schema “IT Management”, that these changes will automatically synchronize with the “Information Security Management” and the Attribute “Owner” will changed to the Owner I have set in the Schema “IT Management”?



At the moment, I must change the Owner for example manually in the IT Management Schema and also manually in the other Schema, I like to automate the configuration so that the change in the Information Security Management synch the changes from the IT Management Schema automatically.



Hope this is understandable.  😊


Kind Regards

Updating one Object when another Object is updated can be achieved using the Groovy scripting. You can leverage the Insight Automation framework, define "Object Updated" as triggering point, set Objecttype = "Computer Corporate" as if condition and then as the action you can provide the path to your groovy script. You can find Groovy Scripting examples here:

I also would like to add the note that, in case you replicate the data then things may get complicated. For example, what will happen if Object is updated in “Desktop PC`s”? Will you need to update Computer Corporate object? You will need to think about Data synchronisation in both ways.

Alternatively, you can keep the Computer Corporate as the main data source. And create references from “Information Security Management” object schema if necessary.


I hope it helps.

thanks for the suggestion, i will try it with a Groovy Script. The Link you have provided is broken, Site not found, but Google give a lot of Input and Insight itself have also Sites with Groovy Examples.

 Thanks for Help.





I updated the link.
