Scripting Question

Custom Inventory linked to assets?

08/20/2017 710 views
I'm new, like, haven't signed the contract new (but I'm sure we will) and I had a question about how to link something.

I noticed the printer inventory shows a printer name, no other details. So I wanted to add them, and I found a method on here that adds custom inventory that's just text but, it does pull back the IP/PORT of the printer. Now, I also SNMP scanned the printer and pulled it back and provisioned it. How would I link my provisioned inventory to custom inventory so when I look at someone's information re: a printer I can click the link to go to the printer that's provisioned.

The idea here is to get a full picture of an environment. If a switch goes down that we've either scanned or imported and we build a relationship to machines and peripherals, network attached devices to run a report that says if switch A goes down, here's what's effected and then these people also cannot print to these printers(we're a hospital we print a lot).

You would really only build this data within the asset area of KACE, so your inventory is made up of devices with an agent installed or agentless discovery I.e. Switches, printers etc. For each inventory record created there is an associated asset record and into that record you can then add additional data fields, which you could use to start building your configuration I.e. Devices dépendant on a service or users associated with a printer
