Changing an Asset's Name

Guest Author

I got a question about an incorrect asset name:

"I discovered a server, but when I discovered it, it was named according to its IP address because of a DNS issue. The incorrect name in the UI angers me. How do I fix it?"

This is relatively simple. In the navigation section, select the All Assets node at the root of the asset tree, then select the Managed Assets tab. Select the incorrectly named asset, and click the pencil icon to edit its properties (including name). Click finish to save the changes.
