Assets in Jira Service Management Cloud is Getting Templates 🎉

Hi Atlassian Community 👋

Mohamed here, from Jira Service Management Assets Cloud Product Management team.

Setting up a new object schema in Assets can be daunting - where to start, what to include, what not to include… All these questions and more can be tricky depending on your use case.

So, to help make things easier we’re developing object schema templates that define the structure, tailored to specific team needs. This will help teams get set up and using Assets in Jira Service Management quicker and more efficiently by providing pre-configured object types and attributes relevant to the template use case.

This work is still under development, but we are super excited to share some progress with you today! We’ve finished the APIs required to create the IT Assets object schema, and while we're still hard at work working on the front-end pieces, it’s ready for you to invoke if you want to have a go.

If you’re interested, this is the object type structure contained within the template. Each object type also contains a variety of attributes designed for the use case:

  • Hardware

    • Phones

    • Laptops

    • Servers

      • Red Hat Linux

      • Windows Server

    • Printers

  • Models

    • Hardware Models

    • Model Categories

    • Software Models

Learn more about how to use the Asset template experimental APIs:

We’d really love to hear your feedback about this template - especially around what object types and related attributes you need. If you have any requests for other templates you’d like to see in the future, please also let us know using this form

Cheers and happy schema-ing 🙌
Mohamed

@Mohamed Hassan -

Thanks for your update and we will evaluate the template and provide our point of view of this template back to your team.

Best, Joseph

Sounds great! As somebody who has been in the CMDB space since 1996, I miss this functionality. 

I would love to add a very specific use case: the hability to export and import templates. In big and distributed organisations will be very useful to create a set of templates (for example, the set of templates that can help me model a production plant) and then distribute that cmdb model to all my brands or companies in the group.

In this way we can embed CMDB knowledge in template sets. 

 

Hope this helps!
Antonio

Thanks @Joseph Chung Yin and @Antonio Valle _G2_ for the feedback. If you don't mind, can I reach out to learn a bit more about the templates export/import use case?

 

Thanks,

Mohamed

This sounds interesting, I am going to explore the APIs. I did notice that the documentation for get list of templates says to set the X-ExperimentalApi: opt-in header but when I did that the response was "To call this endpoint, you must set the X-Experimental header with the value opt-in" so I had to change the header slightly to remove the Api suffix and it worked fine.

Is there any plan to allow customers to create their own templates? I don't really have a need for that myself at the current time but I could see that maybe multiple teams might need a similar schema configuration with restricted permissions so there might be value in allowing us to configure our own custom templates.

Does the Create Object Schema API support a JSON payload? If it does then maybe you wouldn't need to support custom templates at all.

My thought is that I may want to create a schema that is similar to the template so if I can tweak the JSON definition of that template and pass that to the create object schema API that would be much easier than making a ton of API calls to create the schema, create the object types, create attributes etc.
