Editing the Assets

Applies to Product: USM Appliance™ AlienVault OSSIM®

You can edit your assets once they are in USM Appliance. For example, you can add a description or a location for your asset, or increase the asset value to indicate that certain assets are more important than the others. You can modify the same field or fields for multiple assets at the same time.

To edit your assets

  1. Navigate to Environment > Assets & Groups > Assets.
  2. Select the asset(s) you want to edit. For assistance, see Selecting Assets in Asset List View.
  3. Click Actions and then Edit.

    The Edit Assets screen displays.

  4. Modify the fields. For field descriptions, see Field descriptions for the New Asset and the Asset Details pages.

    Note: In addition to the General tab, you can use the Properties and Software tab, as well.

  5. Click Save.

    A message displays informing you that the system has saved your changes.

    Important: All user-defined property values have higher priority than those detected by other USM Appliance tools, such as software inventory, HIDS, and passive or active asset discovery. The AlienVault appliances are recognized as "AlienVault OS".

    If you cannot find an appropriate field to use, you can always add a note to the asset.

To add a note to your asset(s)

  1. Navigate to Environment > Assets & Groups > Assets.
  2. Select one or more assets that you want to edit. For assistance, see Selecting Assets in Asset List View.
  3. Click Actions and then Add Note.
