Adding an asset on a remote network

I saw an interesting question about discovering assets:

"I'm trying to discover a new chassis. I have three Proxy Controllers and all of them can ping the chassis, but only one has the firewall access to communicate with it. None of the Proxy Controllers has a direct connection to the network with the chassis, so that network isn't in the network list. How do I get the discovery job to route correctly?"

There is a solution in the discovery profile here. The discovery profile has a field for the target host or IP address, and a dropdown for the network. When you put the profile together, you supply the asset's IP address, and then select a network that has a route to the network with the chassis on it. Run that and you'll be able to discover the asset.

Assigning a User Roles for Specific Asset Groups

Ops Center's roles give you, as an administrator, a lot of fine-grained control over what each user can do. I heard a question recently that demonstrates this pretty well:

"Is it possible to set up a user defined Group and have a User Role restricted to only have specific roles for this group only?"

Yep. To do this, you select the user from the list in the Admin section and click Manage User Roles to bring up the wizard.


To assign a role to a specific group, you deselect the "Use the default Role associations" option. Then, when you go on to the next step, it lets you select which groups the role applies to:


In this case, the user will have the Asset Admin role only for the Example group. They'll be able to take all of the Asset Admin actions for the assets in that group.

Let me know if you have any questions.
