Enabling Periodic Asset Sync with BMS | VSA

Introduction

Asset information from VSA is synchronized to BMS daily with Periodic Asset Sync. BMS runs a scheduled nightly job to get the latest asset information from VSA. With nightly sync, asset information is updated from VSA to BMS. Any new asset or updates on the assets will be matched and pushed to the asset data in BMS. All imported assets from VSA can be reviewed on the Hardware Assets page in the Service Desk module.

Prerequisite

  • Any update made to the VSA-matched Asset in BMS is always overwritten on the next sync. 
  • When you modify a matched asset in the UI, the asset will have reverted the changes. The asset will match to the data present in VSA  on the next sync. 
  • When a matched asset is deleted in BMS but is still present in VSA, the asset is re-imported on the next sync.
  • A manual import from the Assets Synchronization page allows 100 records per sync.
  • The Sync all Assets button in the Assets Synchronization page can be used to bulk import from VSA.
  • An individual asset can be synced in real-time by using the Sync button available on the asset under Service Desk > Assets Management > Hardware Assets.
