what would be the procedures to manage DC assets? in a scenario when I have 5 spare hard drives (same model different s/n) in the same warehouse? I don't find quantity option when adding new office asset
I'm referring to Ralph3. Is Ralph2.x still in development?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
@tz2005 it's simple

@tz2005
@vi4m would you mind providing some details?

you can use 'bulk adding' feature

just under adding generic asset

and duplicate option in case you already added, and just want to 'duplicate' it

OK, i tried that, nothing seems happen after hitting "add"
is SN and Barcode field required to be filled in?
I tried a few fake numbers, didn't work
ok now it seems working
tz2005
@tz2005
ok next question is, how can i provision / deploy them? if I deploy all 5 drives together, is there a bulk deploy?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
select multiple assets, and use "actions" menu to do "transition"

@tz2005
does the SN and Barcode field work with a scanner?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
should work, it depends on what scanner
it accepts newlines or commas as input
tz2005
@tz2005
cool

@vi4m
should to the job

is there a link between "data center hardware" & "back office hardware"? if I create a warehouse for my datacenter parts inventory and when I use them on my datacenter infrastructure, is it possible to deploy / associate parts with my datacenter hardware? particularly for parts like HDD/RAM/cables

@JaxVN
hello
i'm newbie with Ralph. I want to know do Ralph support Workflow for manage change
Exam i have 2 staff, when they change some thing of asset such as : change owner of Asset A from User Mr. A to Ms. B
Ralph can notify and request me approve that changed?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
@JaxVN not at the moment
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
@tz2005 not directly at the moment
You can do it another way, though
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
you can convert backoffice asset to the datacenter asset using 'convert' action
or, you can stay entirely in one module (keeping things like mouse, display, keyboard separted from dc hardware) - in this case you can add warehouse as a Rack ("Warehouse for DC3") for example
the latter case is sufficient for our needs
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
the other looks like this:

I couldn't find that "convert" feature. stay in one module sounds like a better option
is it possible to document connection info under rack visualization or anywhere in the app? for things like.. switch port, pdu port, console port etc...

you can descriptions for any accessory within the rack

we're planning something more sophisticated(maybe this year)

@tz2005
under remarks, right?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
yes, remarks
tz2005
@tz2005
i mean it's easy to describe a patch panel but there's much more for assets like a server
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
Ok, i get it. You can add custom fields as well, in case of additional asset info, but it's in our development pipeline currently
tz2005
@tz2005
ok cool

here you can see how it looks like allegro/ralph#2426
