Creating customised attribute Asset Tag in uCMDB

Hi Experts


Need suggestions and advice on the following issue.

I need to create Unique Asset Tag field in uCMDB. We will be importing our Inventory into uCMDB and Asset Tag will be the unique key.


Is this going to have any impact when discovery job is running.

Re: Creating customized attribute Asset Tag in uCMDB

There is no short answer on it.

UCMDB has very powerful and intelligent reconciliation engine. It's configured to work with discovery and multiple products we have integrations with. 

There is an option to change current identification rule (which is highly not recommended approach) to identify CIs by your Unique Asset Tag, but discovery won't work after it.


My suggestion is a bit different. Create Unique Asset Tag attribute, but without uniqueness and try to insert data. If you have enough data to reconcile the data it will be inserted, otherwise you'll see what is missing.
