Change and Asset ManagementPermanent link for this heading

The change and asset management enables you to create and manage change processes. This allows carrying out adaptations to an IT infrastructure in a controlled, efficient and risk-minimized manner.

In addition, problem records can be managed and processed using a problem management process. IT asset shelves are used to manage the inventory passed to employees.

Use Case

Description

Dashboard

The change and asset management dashboard is the central access point to the change and asset management.

When a user is added at least to one shelf, a dashboard is automatically created and placed on “Home”. When a user is removed again, the dashboard is also removed.

Configuration

In the change and asset management configuration, app administrators can manage shelves, artifacts, general settings and app users.

CMDB shelves

Configuration management database (CMDB) shelves are used to manage artifacts and to define access rights.

The artifacts can be created in the following folders: Servers, Virtual Machines/Servers, IT Services, Application Services, Network Components, Locations, Cluster and Checks.

RFC shelves

RFC shelves are used to manage RFCs (requests for change) and to define access rights.

Creating request for change

Requests for change (RFCs) are used to request a change.

Change process

RFCs can be processed through a change process in the workflow.

IT asset shelves

IT asset shelves are used to manage the inventory passed to employees and to define access rights. Assets can be handed over to or handed back by employees through a workflow.

Problem record shelves

Problem record shelves are used to manage problem records and to define access rights.
