In addition to defining business service topology in text or XML import datafiles, users can also use the Topology Builder to create or modify business service topology. The Topology Builder is described in Chapter 5, “Creating Business Elements with the Topology Builder.”

Note that elements or relationships created by the Topology Builder can be removed only by the Topology Builder. Similarly, the Topology Builder Console cannot remove any elements or relationships created or established using the import datafiles.

The Topology Builder can also delete service information created using other means, such as an ASL script or using the create operation with the dmctl utility.
