This page contains general settings for the ALVAO Asset Management.


  • Use permissions in the Object Tree - enable if you want access to the object tree to be governed by the rights explicitly set for each user. By default, this option is disabled and users' permissions to objects in the tree are controlled by their roles.
    Some roles grant rights to read or manipulate objects independently of the rights in the object tree. For example, the Asset System Administrator has all rights to work with objects, and this role cannot be removed.
  • Create document files - enable if you want to automatically create PDF documents when creating internal handover protocols.
  • The "Generate new document" option in the handover protocol will be switched on by default - enable if you want to have enable option Generate new document in dialog of Transfer Protocol Internal when generating an internal transfer protocol.
  • Alert for installed products with "Unclassified" state - turn on if you want found SW that is not enabled or required to appear highlighted in the AM Console. See product state.
  • Document attachments to store - select where to store the generated handover protocols internally. 
    • To database - the log will be stored in the Alvao database.
    • To a shared folder (not recommended) - logs will be saved to a shared folder on disk. Specify the path to the folder. Network paths can also be used (e.g. \\server\doc).
  • Path to reports - AM Console will preferably offer this path when printing a report.
    If you do not set a path, AM Console will remember the last location from which the report was printed when printing.
  • Default object kind for computers - object kind of type computer. This type will be preset (the default option) when manually creating new computers and when importing them.

    In order to select a computer object kind, a template must exist for it.
  • State the domain name in computer names (FQDN) - enable if you want to register computers from multiple domains. The domain name will then also be listed in the computer names in the object tree. This option controls the creation of new computers in the tree by reading from AD, by scanning the network and detection by the Autonomous Agent.

    After changing this option, the next time you load from AD, the previously loaded computers in the tree will be automatically renamed. Searching the network in the tree will create new computers.
