Barcode scanning

Asset Manager Essentials supports the use of an Android-based barcode scanner to create and discover assets. The scanner must have the Ivanti Asset Manager app installed, which is available in the Google Play Store here.

Note that the Asset Manager app does not work on Android-based mobile devices, only on dedicated Android-based barcode scanners.

To use the barcode scanner with Asset Manager, you need to be assigned the Asset Scanner role.

The barcode scanner identifies assets by scanning barcodes that contain the asset tag. A record of the scan is added to the Scan Log workspace, as well as the Hardware Assets workspace > Scan Log tab of the asset record. You can open earlier scans from the list of scans. If you have the Asset Administrator role, you can also delete them.

To scan barcodes:

1.Open the Asset Manager app on your Android barcode scanner, and enter your Tenant URL, then click Continue.

2.Log in with an account that has the Asset Scanner role. The Scan Log page appears, showing a list of earlier scans if they exist.

3.Click New Scan.

4.Click the Scan button on the barcode scanner and scan the barcode. The Asset Tag field populates with the number from the barcode.

5.Click Lookup. If a matching asset tag is found in the Hardware Assets workspace, the page is populated with those values for that asset. If no match is made, the page does not change.

6.Complete the fields on the Scan page as required, then click Save. Existing asset records are updated with the new values in both the app and the Hardware Assets workspace. For new assets, a record is created and saved in the those same locations.
A record of the scan is added to the Scan Log workspace, as well as the Hardware Assets workspace > Scan Log tab of the asset record.

7.Click List View to return to the Scan Log page.
