Asset creation in BMS : 

Assets created in VSA using any one of the below methods notify BMS to create a matched record in BMS.

  1. When an agent is deployed/installed on a device.
  2. When a device is promoted to an asset in the Discovery module.

Asset deletion in BMS :

Assets deleted in VSA using any one of the below methods notify BMS to deactivate the record in BMS.

  1. When an agent is uninstalled and its asset data is deleted from VSA
  2. When an asset is demoted to a device in the Discovery module.
