Computers index page available columns

On this page


In SolarWinds Service Desk (SWSD) the Active Computers Index page displays a list of all Active Computers. See List view for information on how to filter, edit, and customize index pages.

The information on the Computers index page was collected via the Discovery Agent, imported via .csv file, or entered manually. The content is a complete inventory of all computers used throughout your organization, including all office locations. 

This feature is available via the browser and mobile app.

In addition, customers who have previously customized their Active Computers index page should be aware of the following:

  • The Name and IP Address information were separated into two fields/columns in May 2022. If they do not both display in the customized view of your page, edit the view to ensure they both display.

  • For customers who have edited their Active Computers index page to include both the Last Update field and the Updated At field, the difference between the two is: Last Update = last update from the agent/scanner while Updated At = last date the record was updated (including manual updates). If the contents of the Updated At field show a date after the Last Update field, then a manual update was performed. When the Updated At field and the Last Update field match, then the last update occurred during the last scan.

  • If you don't see the Scan Origin column on the Computers index pages you can add it by going to Edit View > Columns, and then selecting Scan Origin and clicking Apply.
