Adding asset lookups to tickets

When BMC Client Management (BCM) integration is enabled, you can add Asset Link Controls to your forms so your users can link assets to their tickets. The lookup window allows users to filter the list and to select multiple assets at one time.

Agents can view all asset details in FootPrints or in BCM, start or stop a service, propose changes, and so on.

For more information about integrating BCM with FootPrints Service, see the integration guide and checklist attached to Configuring BMC Client Management. For detailed information about BCM features, review the documentation provided with that product.
