Creating a department

Asset Management Suite

The Department organizational type lets you add your company's departments into the Configuration Management Database (CMDB). You associate each department with a location, cost center, and a barcode that is used for physical audits. The Department configuration item type also lets you specify a manager for the department.

When you enter data for a department, you can specify its hierarchical position within the company. Note that on the Department page, all departments are displayed in the flat list. You can see the hierarchy of the departments on the Organizational Views and Groups page.

This task is a step in the process for setting up your organizational structure.
