    Deleting assets in bulk

    lehmanp

      3 questions:

       

      1. If we remove a Discovery Connection will it delete/remove the assets?

       

      2. How can I delete assets in bulk? Not just the 100 per-page at a time?

       

      3. If I delete an asset and re-create the Discovery Connection, will it re-import all the assets or will it still see them as dupes? (any asset info left over I guess?)

          No

           

          2. How can I delete assets in bulk? Not just the 100 per-page at a time?

          SHIFT-CLICK the multi-select button (instead of just right-clicking it) - that will select ALL items on ALL pages.   I think it will show as a green checkmark if that is selected successfully.

          If the assets have not been deleted from WHD, it should match them up based on Serial Number and one or more other fields (MAC address/machine name/IP?), so it shouldn't make dupes.

          If the assets have been deleted from WHD, I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it will recreate them.  Technically they would likely be a new record (the old one will exist in the db still, but with a field set to note that it is 'deleted').
