Asset Groups

Motadata allows you to categorize Assets in the CMDB into groups. Groups are a convenient way to differentiate Assets based on certain similarities.

Some of the benefits of using Asset Groups are:

  • Asset Groups help Technicians to manage Assets in the Management of Configuration Databases. For Example: if a Technician is responsible for an Asset Group called DATA CENTER ASSETS then one can easily search for the Assets within the group name.
  • Groups are used in Hardware Asset notification. For Example: In case there is a Hardware change in a specific Asset Group then a notification is sent to certain users.

To view the Asset Groups page, navigate to Admin > Asset Management > Asset Groups and the list page appears.

List Page

The list page displays a list of asset groups already created. You can view, add, edit, and delete the asset groups. You can also search and view the details of the asset groups.
