You enter information into the database as a configuration item (also known as a resource) entry. A configuration item represents an object or any detail that you want your system to track. These items can be assets, locations, invoices, schedules, users, contracts, and so on.

You can associate a configuration item with other configuration items. For example, you can associate a user named Jon with a location named California and with a computer named GX260. After you create these associations between configuration items, you can track items and manage information in your asset management environment.
