This method is available only when a Business Services map is displayed in the Topology Browser Console. This method adds a new business element to both the Business Services map and the topology tree.

To add a business element using the Create Node toolbar button:

  1. Click an element in the topology tree to open a Business Services map in which you want to add the new element. The clicked element becomes the focal element (object) of the map display and is surrounded by a box.

  2. Click the Create Node toolbar button to display the Create Map Node dialog box.

  3. In the dialog box, select an element class (BusinessProcess, BusinessUnit, Customer, Department, LOB, Organization, ServiceOffering, or ServiceSubscriber) from the Select class list box.

  4. Type the name of the new element.

  5. Click Apply to add the new element to the topology, and continue to create additional elements. Or, click OK to add the new element and close the Create Map Node dialog box.
