Updating lab resource data

You can update lab resource data to display the latest lab resource configurations and new lab resources that have been added. To do this, you must be integrated with external provider applications that have inventory capability (for example, IBM® Rational® Build Forge®).

Before you begin

You must have an external provider application with inventory capability installed.


To update lab resource data:

  1. In the main menu, click Lab Management > Browse > Inventory History. The Browse Inventory History editor opens.
  2. Click Synchronize. This synchronizes the IBM Engineering Test Management lab resource database with the database of the configured inventory provider.
  3. Click Discover to update the lab resource data with the latest configurations for each lab resource.
    The discovery operation can run for a long time, depending on the provider system and the number of lab resources it manages.
  4. Click a lab resource to display detailed lab resource information.


If a lab resource has been recently added to the database, the status is New Asset. If the configuration of the lab resource has changed since you last viewed it, the status is Asset updated.
