Assigning multiple applications to or removing multiple applications from assets


You can assign multiple applications to or remove multiple application from assets by using a query instead of having to manually assign or remove them.

Before you begin

You must have already created a query that finds all the assets that you to edit.


  1. Click Queries and select Show all queries.

    The Queries page displays.

  2. Click the name of the query that finds the assets.

    The list of assets associated with the query displays.

  3. Select the desired assets in the list or click select assets to select All.

    The Actions button displays.

  4. To add an application to the selected assets, click actions button, and select Edit Application.

    1. Click Application and select one or more applications.

      You can select multiple applications for hosts, internal volumes, and virtual machines; however, you can select only one application for a volume.

    2. Click Save.

  5. To remove an application assigned to the assets, click actions button and select Remove Application.

    1. Select the application or applications you want to remove.

    2. Click Delete.

    Any new applications you assign override any applications on the asset that were derived from another asset. For example, volumes inherit applications from hosts, and when new applications are assigned to a volume, the new application takes precedence over the derived application.
