Here Come the Clones

by | August 25, 2015

So we had some requests on how to make using the Resource Manager easier with replicating data sets. Enter THE RESOURCE CLONER.

Overview:

It’s a simple tool that copies a Resource (including the option of all the Child Resources) so you can setup provisioning tasks more easily. Fun fact – this is also an API endpoint, so you can use it in a variety of ways.

Still working on the location of the menu options – but you will see an interface like this:

Type in the Resource and it will filter the list as you type in the fields.

Once you click on “Clone Resource” it will bring up a new screen with the Resource you selected and its new name. Then you will be able to select options as below:

Note that all of the Gadgets and Fields are saved as you clone Resources, so it’s a great way to setup new objects and hierarchies.

This is currently in QA and will be released with ProVision 5.1.3.

“We decided to move our rather complex IP address and DHCP management process to ProVision and it has worked out great for us!! The team at 6connect were very flexible and went above and beyond to accommodate our requirements and helped to make the migration as smooth and hitch free as possible. Kudos to the team @ 6connect!”
