Example: Combine Smart Labels to identify devices

Example: Combine Smart Labels to identify devices

This example demonstrates how to combine three Smart Labels to identify devices running Windows 7 or Windows 8 that do not have the McAfee® VirusScan® application installed.

The following are the three Smart Labels created in this example:

The first Smart Label, Win78, is applied to devices that have Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating systems. This label has a run order of 1.
The second Smart Label, MissingVirusScan, is applied to devices that do not have the VirusScan application installed. This label also has a run order of 1.
The third Smart Label, Win78MissingVirusScan, is applied to devices that have both the Win78 and MissingVirusScan Smart Labels applied. This label has a run order of 2, so that it runs after the first two labels.

Edit Smart Labels

Edit Smart Labels

You can change the SQL queries used in Smart Labels as needed.

When you change the SQL query used for a software Smart Label, the Smart Label is applied to or removed from items immediately, based on whether the items meet the new criteria. Device Smart Labels are applied to or removed from devices when the device’s inventory information is updated.

If you manually edit the SQL of a Smart Label, you can no longer edit the label using the Smart Label template. This is because the template cannot be used to edit custom SQL.

Click Save.
NOTE: When you click Duplicate to create a label, you can assign it to a new label only.

Setting up labels for user accounts

Setting up labels for user accounts

You can use labels to group user accounts the same way you use labels to group devices and software in the Inventory section. In addition, you can use Smart Labels to grant levels of access to users. For example, you could use labels to designate who can submit, accept, reject, work on, and resolve Service Desk tickets.

Additionally, any labels you create in the Inventory section can work as user labels in Service Desk, provided that you created those labels without restrictions. If the labels were created with restrictions, you can modify them, or create labels in the Inventory sections without restrictions.

Add an All Ticket Owners label

To give users permission to own Service Desk tickets, you can create an All Ticket Owners label that you can apply to user accounts.

Go to the Label Detail page:
a.
Log in to the appliance Administrator Console, https://appliance_hostname/admin. Or, if the Show organization menu in admin header option is enabled in the appliance General Settings, select an organization in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page next to the login information.
