Until now, we used simple base objects, like host, vulnerability or patch. But world is more complex. There are a lot of sources for vulnerabilities, hosts, patches and other data. We use object hierarchy to enrich model with more information from different sources.
See fcpc describe to show more information about describe command
fcpc --describe.object.links=none --describe.format=plantuml describe object/ansiblehost
You can see that objects are inherited. Starting from Core object to AnsibleHost. This helps us to search for specific objects fro different sources.
When searching for data within model, always consider if you want objects from specific source or all objects with same type.
You can use "+" sign as suffix for object to match all subobjects.
fcpc add nmaphost/abc ip=10.10.10.10 description="Host collected by nmap" fcpc add ansiblehost/def description="Host collected by Ansible" fcpc search host
