    What is CI.Location and how is it populated/used from within Discovery?


    Resolution

    CI Location is set inside HEAT as a range of IP addresses related to a physical location. An Admin creates this record.
    When Discovery "finds" a CI and that CI has an IP within a range set in a CI Location, HEAT will assign that CI to the given Location.

    Example:
    Location: Office West
    IP Range:
    Start -> 192.168.0.1
    End ->  192.168.15.255

    If Discovery finds a new CI with an IP address of 192.168.10.12 it will assign that CI to 'Office West' as it is within the range of 192.168.0.1 -> 192.168.15.255
