BMC ITSM8 Association to Change Create

Creates a relationship between a another record, like a CI, and an change using the CHG:Association form. One CHG:Association record is created, which creates the relationship from the change to the other record, the other side of the relationship must be created. For asset, the Asset Association Create handler is needed to create the other half of the relationship (from the asset to the change).
