3.4. Asset Management¶
Asset Management view you can see all the connected ASGARD
agents. New assets will be placed under
Asset Requests and need a
manual approval before being able to connect to your ASGARD (for auto
accept see Advanced).
Duplicate Assets view is visible, you should try to remediate
the issues in a timely manner, since this might cause unwanted side
effects on the duplicate hosts.
Assets in the
Duplicate Assets view indicate, that one or more
agents are running on multiple endpoints. This might be caused by
cloning a system with an already installed ASGARD 2 Agent. Undesirable
side effects of duplicate assets are alternating hostnames and tasks
that fail immediately.
For remediation please see Duplicate Assets Remediation.
3.4.1. Asset Overview¶
Management of all endpoints registered with ASGARD can be performed in Asset Management. The assets will be presented as a table with an individual ASGARD ID, their IP addresses and host names.
By clicking the control buttons in the Actions column, you can start a new scan, run a response playbook, open a command line or switch the endpoints ping rate to a few seconds instead of a maximum of 10 minutes.
- The internal ping between the ASGARD agent and ASGARD is based on HTTPS not ICMP
- Depending on the user's role some of the control buttons may be disabled
3.4.2. Column Visibility¶
Users can select various columns and adjust their view according to their needs by clicking the gear wheel in the top right corner of any table.
3.4.3. Asset Labels¶
Labels are used to group assets. These groups can then be used in scans or tasks.
You can add multiple labels to an asset or a group of assets. This is done by
selecting the particular assets in the left column, typing the label name
(e.g. New_Label) and clicking the blue
Add Labels button.
Don't use labels with white space characters as it could cause issues in syncs with Analysis Cockpit, exports / imports or other underlying legacy functions.
In order to remove labels, select your assets, click the yellow
button and type the name of the label you want to remove for these assets.
The asset management section has extensive filtering capabilities, e.g. it is easy to select only Linux endpoints that have been online today and have a particular label assigned.
3.4.4. Export Asset List¶
The Import/Export Section allows you to export your assets to a CSV formatted file.
3.4.5. Import Labels¶
The import function allows you to add or remove labels on assets based on columns in the previously generated CSV formatted file.
The import function processes the values in the columns
Add Labels ... and
Remove Labels ...
only. In order to change labels, use the already exported list, add values in these
columns and re-import it by using the
Apply Labels from CSV button.
Separate multiple labels with comma. Leading or ending white space characters
will be stripped from the labels.
