The rxInventory 2.6 release contains several new features which help organizing the assets in the database more clearly. New asset classes can be defined and devices freely assigned to them. Custom icons can also be set for the new device types and aid in getting a fast overview on queries. In addition there is a new archive folder where assets can moved to which are not in use any more or have been placed in stock. This way these device do not distort the queries and statistics. (e.g. software installation count)
Last but not least there are a lot of usability and stability enhancements which make rxInventory an even better experience.
Changes to rxInventory 2.6
Note: When starting rxInventory 2.6 for the first time, the database is changed in a way which is not compatible with older versions of rxInventory.
- The user can create her own custom device classes now. Assets can be moved freely between all classes by drag&drop or use of the context menu. Additionally, custom icons may be specified for the new classes and the devices belonging to these classes.
- Assets can be moved to an Archive node (and restored from there). Archived assets do not show up in other queries and do not count to software and hardware statistics. This is ideal for devices which are not in use any more or were placed into stock.
- Permanently connected remote drives and printers are retrieved and shown below the respective user node in the inventory.
- Previous scans are now deleted correctly. Removal of multiple scans is significantly faster.
- SQL views defined by custom queries are now recreated automatically when restoring a database backup.
- When selecting an ORACLE database the OK button remained gray even when all settings were entered correctly.
- A lot of usability and stability improvements.
