Product Features

Here you can find the references for features that other LeanIX products also utilize. Some of those features are: Dashboard, Diagram, Inventory, Portals, and Reports. Here you will see how these features can also be leveraged in the LeanIX VSM.

Integration API

The Integration API provides the ability to import and export data using a generic LeanIX Data Interchange Format (LDIF). LDIF is a JSON format with a very simple structure described in the following sections. All mapping and processing of the incoming and outgoing data are done using "Data Processors" that are configured behind the API.
Extensive information on Integration API is available here.

Grouped Execution of multiple Integration API configurations

A new key "executionGroups" added to the main section now allows Integration API to execute multiple Integration API configurations as if they were one. This is advanced functionality, not available in the UI but only when using the REST API. See the Swagger documentation on how to call. Detail information on Execution Groups is available here.

LeanIX VSM Integration

The LeanIX VSM integration offers an automatic way to integrate discovered software artifacts from VSM into your LeanIX Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) workspace. This will allow you to:

  1. Use aggregated information on your discovered software artifacts to drive decision making within EAM
  2. Provide a seamless end-to-end view in EAM on your IT Landscape to support your business transformation use cases

Extensive information on LeanIX VSM Integration is available here.

LeanIX Metrics

LeanIX Metrics allows you to store time-series data in LeanIX and create interactive charts to display the data. In addition, the data can be linked to Fact Sheets, presented on the Dashboard, or be displayed within the "Reports" area.
Extensive information on LeanIX Metrics is available here.

Inbound Processors

The integration API reads provided LDIF and for each data object, it walks over all the configured Data Processors and checks if the filter configured for each Data Processor matches. In case of a match, the Processor executes the transformation of data and writes to a LeanIX entity.
Extensive information on LeanIX Metrics is available here.

InboundMetrics Processor

InboundMetrics is used to write a single new point to a configured metrics endpoint. InboundMetrics is used in the Inbound Processors within LeanIX.
Extensive information on InboundMetrics Processor is available here and Inbound Processors here.

Business Capabilities Modeling

The Business Capability Map is used to group Applications according to their functionality. The Business Capability model is relatively stable over time. Although it reflects your individual business model to a certain degree, our generic Capability Model is the perfect starting point to plan your IT landscape.
