The IT Assets Database was replaced by the IT Admins CMDB and is EOL / End of Life, no further development will be done on this project.
Links and URLs is used on the main menu page. Theoretically this is a simple link-list that you can provide to have quick access to all your web-portals and URLs with a friendly name. This helps to remember all the URLs and having them saved and managed centrally through the asset management database.
Instead of having just a single flat list, this is actually based on a access level system that by default knows Helpdesk, Sys-Admin, Management – you could theoretically add more in the specific table, but this is the default you have available.
The access level is hierarchical, meaning, a higher level see lower level links as well – see the following example
Helpdesk – Level 1:
Sys-Admin – Level 2:
Management – Level 3:
The helpdesk level will only see the three helpdesk links, while the sys-admin level will see the helpdesk links as well as the sys-admin links and finally management level will see all links.
You assign those levels in the application user interface per user. A change to a link will auto-populate within minutes to all application users through the auto-refresh of the main menu.
