The following are the requirements to create a Relationship using XML and GRLoader.


To create a relationship, you need only provide identifying fields using CORA lookup. The minimum is:

  • <relation>
  • <provider>
  • <name>
  • <type>
  • <dependent>
  • <name>


  1. The relationship type determines which CI is the provider and which is the dependent.
    If the relationship type is a dependent/provider type relationship, then the CI roles are reversed automatically.

  2. If the CI was created with more identifying fields, such as Serial Number, Host Name, etc. then you must specify the same fields when creating a relationship involving that CI.

  3. GRLoader does not support updating/deleting of relationships. This can only be accomplished using the UI.
