Advanced Asset Management in Jira Service Management: Course description

Advanced Asset Management in Jira Service Management

Move beyond asset management basics to put a wealth of context into every Jira ticket – and resolve issues faster.

This advanced course for Jira Administrators will show you how to unlock the full power of Jira Service Management using Assets.

In this course, you will learn the following
  • How to integrate Assets with JSM to help agents process tickets quickly and efficiently

  • How to configure Assets object custom fields to reduce errors and provide vital information on tickets

  • How to use advanced AQL functions, including creating queries that combine AQL and JQL

  • How to configure automation rules based on JSM tickets and Assets custom fields

Once you know the basics of Assets, you’re ready to take it to the next level of asset management.

Yes, you’ll have an easier time tracking company assets. But you’ll also be able to use that information to enhance service requests, incident reports, and other Jira Service Management tickets.

When you have Assets data providing context to your Jira Service Management tickets, you’ll have relevant information at your agent’s fingertips right when they need it for faster solutions.

This advanced Assets course will show you how to manage your Enterprise assets (EAM) and IT assets (ITAM). And take advantage of Asset's CMDB capabilities. You’ll be able to customize Assets for your organization’s resources and processes. You'll also get an introduction to integration options. And learn advanced configurations for data import and synchronization.

Upgrade your knowledge of asset management to enhance the way you work with Jira Service Management.
