Updating CI locations through bulk updates

You can use the bulk update feature to update CI locations.


The software license management feature requires that the Company field is completed for software CIs. If you are managing site licenses, you must complete the Site field for computer system CIs. If these fields are not completed by your discovery products, you can use the bulk update feature to update the Company and Site fields in bulk.

To update CI locations through bulk updates

  1. In the navigation pane of the Asset Management console, choose Functions > Manage Bulk Updates.
  2. In the Manage Bulk Updates dialog box, in the CI Search Criteria area, specify your search criteria, and click Search.
  3. From the table, select all the CIs for which you want to change a location, and click Update CI Location.
  4. In the Relocate CIs dialog box, from the Company, Region, Site Group, and Site lists, select a new location for the CIs you selected.
  5. Click Save.
  6. In the confirmation message dialog box, click Yes.


In a multitenancy environment, when CIs are updated using bulk inventory, if you change the company, the product categorizations may not apply to the new company. To ensure that the product categorizations get applied to the new company, you must run the Normalization Engine.
