The CIs within the CMDB are categorized into specific Configuration Item Types (CI Types). Each CI Type is represented with Attributes and Relationships that is unique for the CIs classified under it. Attributes are data elements that describe the characteristics of CIs under the CI Type. For instance, the attributes for CI Type Server can be Model, Service Tag, Processor Name and so on. Relationships, on the other hand, denote the link between two CIs that identifies the dependency or connection between them.
