    Article Summary

    Sync Asset Warranty data with the Asset Information listed in SysAid Service Desk Asset List.


    Requirements

    • SysAid Full Edition

    • Dell Technologies Business TechDirect Account


    Enabling this Integration requires synchronization between the organization's Asset manufacturer account and SysAid Service Desk.

    The Integration allows you to track all Asset warranty information directly in SysAid, so you can manage it proactively and efficiently.

    This document provides the steps required to activate your Asset Warranty Integration.

    Step 1: Activate the Asset Warranty Integration

    To configure your Asset Warranty Integration in SysAid, follow these steps:

    1. Go to Settings > My Apps > Asset Warranty

    2. Click on the cogwheel icon

    3. Turn on the “Activate integration” toggle

    4. Enter your Dell Client ID

    5. Enter your Dell Client Secret

    For more information, see the instructions for obtaining your Dell API Key Details.

    1. Choose whether to “Overwrite Existing Warranty Expiration” (Y/N)

      • Y: The out-of-the-box “Warranty Expiration Field” should be overwritten by the Asset Warranty Expiration from Dell
