Asset Discovery is the feature that discovers the assets in the network for asset management. It supports both On-Premise and SaaS-based platforms. Using Asset Management, the admin maintains the records of all the hardware or software assigned to each employee.
Here, Motadata ServiceOps helps in maintaining as well as discovering all the possessed asset records in just one application. In addition, it adds with the asset’s number and exact names. Thus, Asset Discovery helps to find all the assets of each single network or single location using various features such as network scan, domain scan, and SCCM scan. Moreover, adding multiple Credentials for successful network connection will ultimately show the discovery of the assets after the scan.
Assets can be discovered in two ways:
Using Discovery Service: This is used in the On-premise ServiceOps application for discovering the assets (Agentless and Agent-based). To discover the agent-based assets, Motadata ServiceOps agent is required to be installed in the target machines. To install the agent, refer to the Agent Installation Guide.
Using Discovery Poller Service: This is used in the SaaS-based as well as On-Premise ServiceOps application. It discovers the assets in the local network behind the firewall and also remote offices. To achieve this, the Poller service is required to be installed in the network in which the assets are available. To install the Poller Service, refer to the Poller Service Installation Guide.
