New features in Octopus


Barcode reader

You can now use a barcode reader to quickly load a CI file.

How to use:

Click in a quick search zone of any module to give it a target and scan the barcode.

If the barcode corresponds to a serial number of a CI, the CI file will automatically load. If the barcode is not recognized, Octopus will offer to create the CI or link it to an existing one.

For more information on this option, see the Using a barcode reader section of the Service Asset and Configuration Management Wiki.
