Configure Asset general settings

Configure Asset service credentials and import schedule.

  1. From the Asset home page, click Settings .
  2. Configure the service account. The service account runs background processes. You must use an Administrator or Content Administrator user name and password. You can also disable and change the log level settings for the Asset import process.
  3. Configure the asset data import schedule. The data import schedule determines how often asset data is saved from the Tanium live data into the asset database. This database provides data for offline assets. You can create a standard interval or a Cron schedule. For example, you might create one of the following intervals based on your environment size:
    • Less than 50,000 devices: every 1-2 hours
    • Less than 250,000 devices: every 4 hours
    • Greater than 500,00 devices: consult your TAM to configure the import schedule

    For more information about the Cron syntax, see Reference: Cron syntax. Click Save to update the schedule.

  4. Click Save.
