Asset Upload Limitiations

Note
  • While uploading assets in bulk via CSV, the system allows a maximum of 2000 assets per upload file.
  • The asset upload CSV file now only allows a maximum of 30 custom fields. If you have more than 30 customer fields, the downloaded template includes only the first 30 custom fields arranged alphabetically. However, the system allows you to replace the unused custom fields from the first 30 with the custom fields you want to use.

Important
  • Uploading assets in bulk may result in a substantial drop in the SAFE score until the assets are assessed and controls remediated.

Retire Asset


This functionality allows users to retire assets first and then delete them permanently. The retired asset will be displayed as Inactive in the asset list. Click on the Power icon to retire the assets.

Each asset in the Others needs to be edited to set the appropriate vertical. After selecting the appropriate vertical user can fill the other required fields for the asset and confirm the asset. This moves the asset to the appropriate vertical.
