3.4. Asset Management

In the 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).

If the 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.

Asset Actions

Available Actions (left to right): Run Scan, Run Task, Connect To Remote Console, Show Timeline, Enable/Disable Fast Poll Mode


  • 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.

Asset Columns

Available columns in Asset Management

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.

Asset Labeling

Add labels

In order to remove labels, select your assets, click the yellow Remove Labels button and type the name of the label you want to remove for these assets.

Asset Labeling

Remove labels

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.
