How do I add an Asset?

Postby xonaadmin » Wed Apr 02, 2014 6:46 am

An asset is created by right clicking on the "All" folder and selecting "New Asset".


The asset editor allows you to assign an asset name and host name for the asset. It also allows you to set the directory service and file transfer ports (in case you are not using the default ports). Finally, a description may be useful. When assets are displayed in a list, the quick search functions will search the description. So placing keywords in the description might provide a nice way to help locate assets when configuring workflows.

Enter the information and "Submit" it to create an asset.


Depending on how the agent on the asset was installed, you may be prompted for a login and password. In this case, you will need to provide a root login and password (UNIX) or a login and password for a user that is a member of the "Administrators" group (Windows) for the asset being added. This step prevents rogue situate instances from hijacking computers. For more information on this topic, please see Agent Security,
