Placing bulk CIs in inventory

After you create Bulk Inventory CIs,  you must add an inventory location to them.


If you do not see a location, make sure that the CI has a CI type of inventory location, and not physical location. For information about creating inventory locations, see Creating inventory location CIs.

To place bulk CIs in inventory

  1. On the Asset Management console, from the navigation pane, choose Functions > Manage CIs.
  2. In the Select a CI Type dialog box, from the Type list, select Bulk Inventory > Bulk Inventory, and click Search.
  3. From the search results, open the bulk CI.
  4. On the Inventory Location tab, click Add.
  5. In the Search Inventory Locations dialog box, specify the search criteria and click Search.
  6. From the Results List table, select a location and click Relate.
    A message appears stating that the selected inventory location has been related to the bulk inventory record.
  7. In the message about the relationship, click OK.
    On the Bulk Inventory form, the Inventory Location tab lists each of the related locations.
  8. If the inventory is stored in multiple locations, for each location, repeat step 6 and step 7.
  9. Click Close.
    On the Bulk Inventory form, the Inventory Location tab lists each of the related locations.
