Issue



Before performing an asset import operation from a CSV file, you must first create the CSV file. The assets that are enumerated in the CSV file must be arranged in a specific format. You must configure the CSV data collector before you import the assets into Control Compliance Suite.


Cause



Control Compliance Suite lets you collect the asset data in the form of categories that are specific to the supported platforms. Each asset type has some specific primary, mandatory, and optional fields. If the primary and mandatory fields are missing, the asset import operation can fail with error 'Failed to add the asset in asset system'.

Solution



The following table lists the primary and mandatory fields for the Windows Machine asset type:



Attached is an XML file that can be imported as a query definition in RMS and used in bvControl for Windows to create an exported CSV file:
