Editing Resources from the Inventory Dashboard

This article explains how to modify a resource's settings and folder location from the Inventory dashboard.

Note: This feature does not apply to cloud provider resources.

To edit a resource:

  1. In the Inventory dashboard, in the Resources tab, click the resource's More Actions button and select Edit.

    The Resource dialog box is displayed.

  2. Edit the resource's settings, as appropriate. The Name, Address, Folder, Visibility, and Remote Connection fields are provided for all resources, while additional fields may change, depending on the Shell of the resource.

    NameSpecify the name of the resource in CloudShell
    AddressSpecify the IP Address of the device
    Folder

    Select the CloudShell folder in which to place the resource. Use the search bar to quickly find the desired folder.

    Note: Placing a resource in a domain's folder does not associate the resource with that domain.

    Visibility

    Determine who can see the resource in the diagram, search pane and in the Inventory dashboard. The default visibility is defined in the resource family.

    Values are:

    • Family Default - as defined in the resource's family
    • Admin only - only domain and system administrators
    • Everyone - any CloudShell user

    Note: When you change the visibility, a window pops up, asking you if you want to apply the change to the sub resources as well. Click Yes to apply to all sub resources.

    Remote Connection

    Enable/disable remote connections (using RDP, SSH, telnet, etc.) to the resource's device from the sandbox. The default remote connection policy is defined in the resource family.

    Values are:

    • Family Default - as defined in the resource's family
    • Enable - allow remote connections from the resource
    • Disable - do not allow remote connections from the resource

    Note: Remote connections require the use of QualiX Server. For more information, see QualiX Installation and Configuration Guide.

  3. Save your changes.

    It is recommended to rediscover the resource at this time to make sure it was configured properly - see Discovering Inventory Resources.
