Figure 1. Configuration Functional Component Model


The Configuration functional component is focused on tracking the inventories of Actual Product Instances and the associated relationships of the underlying systems for the specific Digital Product. The Actual Product Instance represents the entire stack of resources and CIs including integrations and dependencies. In addition, this functional component tracks the relationship of an Actual Product Instance to other Digital Products – the Actual Product Instances needed to function, and the relationships between the underlying systems. Its purpose is to identify, control, record, report, audit, and verify service items; including versions, constituent components, their attributes, and relationships.

The Configuration functional component supports the value streams:
