Asset category mapping - VSA/BMS Sync

Question:

How do I make use of Asset Category mapping available in RMM integration settings of BMS?

 

Asset Category mapping

The Asset Category mapping option allows you to decide what the Asset category will be for the hardware asset when its synced from VSA. 

 

Below are your options : 

1 - Assign as Server or Workstation based on OS Type

When this is selected, the category of the new BMS Asset will be the same as the "OS Type" of the VSA asset.

If OS type contains the word "server" the category will be set to "server", If not it will be "workstation". 

2 - Assign VSA Device Type

When this is selected, the category of the new BMS Asset will be the same as the "Device Type" of the VSA asset. 

3 - Assign Category default.

When this is selected, the category of the new BMS Asset will be the default item that is defined in your BMS lists. 

Admin > My Company > Lists > Asset Hardware Category.

Assign VSA Device Type: Overwrite/Sync Asset Category 

When "yes" is selected for overwrite, if an asset category was manually changed, upon the next asset sync it will change back to the category defined in asset mapping.
