Processing MASS Deletions of Inventory

Hello All,

I have about 3k worth of assets that I need to delete. Is there a way to do MASS Deletions without having to Select each device one by one?

Please let me know and THANKS in advance!

You should be able to accomplish this all from the 'All Inventory' page in FNMS. Configure your search criteria so only the devices you want to delete are returned. Increase results to returned to max. Then (see attached) 1. Click the Select All Check Box 2. Remove Asset Links 3. Delete

Re: Processing MASS Deletions of Inventory

If you want to do a mass deletion of inventory device records (as per this thread short description): you should arrange to delete them out of the inventory source database(s). How you do this will depend on the inventory source(s) you are using. If you don't delete data out of the inventory source database(s) then deleting records in FlexNet won't help: they will immediately re-appear during the next inventory import.

If you want to do a mass deletion of asset records (as per the body description in this thread): you can filter and multi-select to mass delete records on the Hardware Assets > All Assets page. This can be done in blocks of up to 1,000 records by setting the number of rows displayed per page.

If you want to do a mass unlinking of asset to inventory device records: you can do this as described by @dsalter.

Hi,

Thanks for your response. So the majority of the devices are listed in the Out-Of-Date Inventory tab. They are mixed with assets that are still active and we are troubleshooting. There is no SEARCH criteria I can use to single out these devices.

HI,

Thanks for the response. For my understanding, you mean delete it from the actual Flexnet DB on the DB Server?  Not from the actual FMNS Application correct?
