Jump to solution

Hi,

I have 400 computers that i would like to change the status to "Disposed" in Flexera. Is there a quicker way than doing every single one manually? Thank you

Hi,

As long as all assets are of the same type (e.g. Workstation), you can select them from the "All Assets" view and then click "Open". You should then see something like this:

Just change the status and hit "Save".

If it's something you need to do regularly, maybe it's worth creating some kind of automation.

You can build an business adapter to match on Serial number  update the status.

In addition to the Multi-Edit of the same Asset Type highlighted by @mfranz, you can also do this with a Business Adapter.

Create a spreadsheet that has the Asset Name and/or the Serial Number to find an existing hardware asset.

Create a Business Adapter to read this spreadsheet, match to an existing Hardware Asset and then change the status of the asset to "Disposed".

You can then re-use this adapter in the future.  Just update that same spreadsheet with a new set of Asset Names/Serial Numbers and then run the adapter again.
