To add a new resource type,

  • Go to "Admin >> Customize" section and click the icon "Resource Types"
  • Click "Add Type"
  • Provide a name for the new resource type
  • If you have a custom icon for the new resource type, click 'Browse' and choose the image. If you do not have a custom image, the default icon will be displayed
  • If you wish to enable "Remote Password Reset" for this resource type, select the checkbox "Remote Password Reset Required". Then select a reset type that is similar to the one being added. For example, if you are adding a new resource type that is similar in behaviour to Linux, select accordingly
  • For new resource types, you have the option to customize the attributes appearing in the 'Resource Addition' and 'Edit Resource' forms. You can choose not to have certain attributes - for example, if your new resource type does not require the attributes 'Department' and 'Location', just leave the checkboxes for the two entries blank. After doing this, when you invoke "Add Resource" or "Edit Resource" form of a resource belonging to this type, the two fields "Department" and "Location" will not appear
  • Click "Save" to add the new resource type

To edit a resource type,

  • Go to "Admin >> Customize" section and click the icon "Resource Types"
  • Click the "Edit" icon present against the resource to be edited
  • You can change the resource name and/or the icon
  • Click "Save" to give effect to the changes
  • The changed name and/or icons will get displayed wherever the particular resource type had been referred
