Any user of Open-AudIT with an access level of Edit Details on a given group can edit the devices in that group. You can check the access level of any user by going to menu -> Admin -> Users -> List Users.
Depending on the number of devices you wish to select, it may be faster to select all devices, then deselect certain devices – or the other way around.
After selecting the desired devices, click the Edit button in the table header row. You will be sent to the Edit Systems form. You can view the selected devices in the table below the form (you may need to scroll down to see the table).
When you are done, click the Submit button.
That’s all there is to it!
Now imagine a more advanced scenario – I wish to set all my VMware based Linux servers ‘class’ attribute to virtual server.
I have just edited from 1 to any number of devices in 6 clicks!
You can apply the same logic for setting devices in locations, in organisations (maybe departments), etc, etc. When you need to update manually supplied data to multiple devices which is the same, Bulk Editing can save you (literally) hours.
