New Asset Manager Web Usability package: get additional web usability features for free!

For several years now, Asset Manager has been providing value to its customers out of the release cycles through content packages: SAM Best Practice package, Cloud Billing package... and now: Web Usability package.


The web usability package has recently been released.


With a simple import, you will get the ability

  • To access all your screens through quick search filters (QBE)
  • To create advanced filters in an easy and intuitive way
  • To do selection and multi edition of records
  • To get an aggregated view of your history across tables

The documentation explains the approach and how to extend easily these best practices. You will also get hint on how to tune the interface through personalized welcome wizards, intelligent business home pages and simplified filters.


The Web Usability package is a zip file with documentation and import files. It can be downloaded on HP Live Network Asset Manager Business content section

4) The Web Usability package documentation also provides good hints on tuning the user interface.

In particular, the "welcome action" can launch a wizard, specific to the user's profile, or even specific to the user himself.

This page can provide hyper links that point to any Asset Manager screen, dashboard or homepage... It buttons that will link to screens or launch other wizards...




The wizard can also expose dashboards.
