Managing asset groups

Catalog administrators create and manage asset groups to organize items that end users can see on their My Stuff page. For more details about how items are displayed on the My Stuff page, see Setting up the My Stuff page.

You can manage asset groups from the Asset Groups page, which you can access by selecting Services > Asset Groups. From the Asset Groups page, you can add, edit, and delete asset groups.  

If you have more than one environment with  BMC Digital Workplace Catalog , you can share asset groups between them by exporting asset groups to local files, and importing asset groups from files saved on your hard drive.

BMC Digital Workplace Catalog  provides the following out-of-the-box asset groups:

  • Accounts, Security and IDs
  • Computers and mobile devices
  • Computer software
  • Cloud services
  • Virtual system
  • Device peripherals and accessories
  • Electronics
  • Human Resources
  • Mobile applications
  • Networking
  • Office equipment
  • Printers and scanners
  • Servers and related hardware.

To create an asset group

  1. On the Asset Groups page, click New Group.
  2. In the Asset Group Name field, enter a name of the group.

    You can set up the Group Options pane as follows:


    Asset classes, service categories, and individual services that have already been assigned to an asset group, cannot be assigned again to a different asset group.

      • To associate the asset group with specific asset classes retrieved from any connection, select the Add check box next to a connection, and select one or more asset classes.


        Only those connections that are enabled in the Application Settings pane are available in the Connections list.

        If the connection to some of the available connections is unconfigured, the connections are displayed with yellow warning icons.

    • In the Service Requests section, create one or more of the following mappings:
      • To associate the asset group with one or more service categories, click Add next to Categories, and select one or more service categories.
      • To associate the asset group with one or more services, click Add next to Services, and select one or more individual services.
