On the lower part of the page, there are two columns.

The left column contains an asset structure tree that displays the following:

You organize assets into entities and correlation contexts.

By default, USM Appliance displays one correlation context named My Company that contains all assets and networks. There are no default entities.

The right column of the page displays the inventory of all assets, organized by properties. Some examples consist of operating system, role, and department.
