Product Update: Changes to Assets Setup page

Discussion created by Yuval Pecht Employee on Mar 30, 2014

We have recently made some changes and updates to the Assets section in the Setup page.

The Assets section in the Setup enables you to configure the following options:

  • Request and schedule backups - you can either request an immediate backup (to be sent to your email) or schedule a backup to be sent to a user or group of users on a weekly basis.

  • You can define whether to differentiate Other assets by their serial numbers.

  • You can ask Samanage to auto generate sequential asset IDs for your Other assets if they do not already have them.

Lastly, you can also define in this page automatic assignment rules for computers. These rules scan computer assets added to Samanage by the installed agents and when they conform to a defined pattern, they will automatically be assigned to a site or a department.


The scanning rules were enhanced to enable scanning all the network cards of the computer for the matching IP pattern.

As a final note, we have recently moved the computer assignment rules from the organization section under setup to this page.


At your service,


The Samanage Team
