KACE Product Support Question

Is it possible to add extra fields in Inventory?

07/20/2016 1499 views
is it possible to add custom fields in inventory (e.g. "comment", "technical_owner" and etc.)?
Also i made some research in the website and it doesn't seem possible(this one is from 2015, and this 2010).
I am quite new with KACE products and maybe it is possible to add fields now.

You can't add fields that you would manually enter date into for the inventory page but each computer in the inventory should be linked with a computer asset in the Assets module. You can add custom fields to the computer asset type.

You can create custom inventory fields under Inventory, Software. Custom inventory rules allow you to read data from the machine (typically) and have that information displayed on the inventory record. 

Also, there is a Notes field in the inventory that you could use for comments.

  • Thank you for your answer @chucksteel. I found out that i can define assets and import my datas as .csv in there. Now my question is little bit changed. Can i change these asset values later somehow? Thank you.
    • Certainly. You just need to find the asset in the assets module and edit it.
      • thank you for your interest, it helped a lot :)
