System Titles

You can tailor the column titles in ASM Core browse tables to suit your requirements. This would normally only be done once, when the system is first set up.

This will not change the field titles. You can only change field titles using ASM Designer.

Changing Field Names

Before you start

You must have System Set Up selected in the Admin tab of your General Access security role.

  1. Select the Menu button , then Admin, then select System Administration.

    The System Administration window appears.

  2. In the Explorer pane, expand System, then select System Titles. The System Titles window appears, displaying a table of existing fields.
  3. At Show Titles by, use the drop down list to select an area of the system to display the corresponding fields for which you can configure the titles.
  4. Title The internal names of fields throughout ASM Core. You cannot change these on this window.
    Name The name that actually appears on windows in ASM Core

  5. Select the name you wish to change and overtype with the new name.
  6. Select to save the changes. Provide the Change Reasons if prompted to do so.

Any system titles you change will be updated in parts of the application such as search results browse tables, but will not be reflected in field labels on Details windows. For example, changing the CMDB Item Title system title will be updated in browse tables and so on, but will still display as the Title field on the CMDB Item Details window. Analysts with the appropriate security role access can edit the labels of fields on screen, or set the display name of fields in the ASM Designer.
