Other assets

On this page


Similar to the way all SolarWinds Service Desk (SWSD) Assets Management index pages work, from the Other Assets page you can manage assets not specifically defined as an asset type by SWSD. On the Other Assets page you can manage assets such as vehicles, monitors, desks, chairs, and other equipment.


Assets > Other Assets.
