More than one device needs the same information but editing every single one individually is tedious.
Multi-Edit can be particularly helpful in situations where the same information needs to be added to multiple devices, such as when a few devices have been ordered and you want to add the order number or another piece of information. Rather than editing each device individually, you can select the relevant devices and make the changes simultaneously, making the process less laborious.
To use Multi-Edit, simply navigate to the CMDB, select the device(s) you wish to edit by checking the box on the left-hand side, and click on Hardware - Multi-Edit.
Hardware type update
Select CMDB -> Column -> Current Hardware Type to see if your hardware type is distinguished from Inventory.
Select the hardware you want to edit and click Multi-Edit.
By selecting Use Hardware Type from Inventory, your current hardware type will be substituted for the calculated hardware type from the inventory.
Similar to updating the hardware type, you can also set the current site for multiple devices using Multi-Edit. To do this, select the devices you want to edit from the CMDB and click on the Multi-Edit button under Hardware. Then, choose "Site Calculate from IP" to automatically calculate the current site.
