A Change results in modifications to configuration items (CIs), assets, locations, or some combination of these. You can specify the updates that will result from a Change at any time before the change is completed. You can update configuration item (CI) attributes, asset attributes, and location attributes.

About this task

You can modify CI attributes either on the Change as a whole or on individual implementation tasks that affect CIs. When the Change is completed, the attribute values of a CI in the configuration management database (CMDB) are set to the values specified by the Change.
