Classifications/ Classstructure Cleanup

  • 1.  Classifications/ Classstructure Cleanup

    Hi All,

    We are trying to clean up our huge Classifications list.  We would be removing, adding new ones, changing descriptions etc. I realized that changing the classification description does not automatically update the Class Structure Description and then it does not update the Asset Description (if the generate description and use classifications are checked). Is that right ? Or am I missing something? If that is the case, then first updating the classification, then class structure and then assets using application import/export are only option left?

    Any thoughts/ideas?

    Thank you,
    Megha

    Hello Megha,

    Classification and Class Structure should be updated first for sure if you are using generate description from Classification over Assets.

    Once done, to update classification on Asset, you can write a simple automation script that calls asset.updateDesc() method and run it once via Escalation or Cron. This will do updates for you for all assets rather than you need to prepare asset description from classification & class structure in data loading template and load it.

    Thanks,
    Prashant

    The automation script is a good idea!
