Automatic update of CMDB

Good day! 

Our company is using CMDB as a great tool to keep track of info about our servers. We are currently inputting all the info by hand, and due to human error or else - mistakes occur, as well as when configuration changes users forget to update CMDB. 
The question is - is there a way to update server unit info like Storage/ram/serial number automatically? Or half-automatic - to physcially press a button to start the script once a week, so it updates all the info. I suppose half-automatic would be best, as it requeres a closed ssh connection to each rack location. 

Attaching a picture of how it looks now. 

Thank you in advance.

You have a few options:

  1. Create your own script to scan your network and acquire the necessary info and then push the data into Insight via the Insight API.
  2. Create your own script to scan your network and acquire the necessary info and then land that info in either a file or database that Insight can then automatically import from. (or if you're really fortunate, that info is in an LDAP repository already and you can pull from there)
  3. Install one of the different Insight Discovery addons https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1214668/insight-discovery?hosting=datacenter&tab=overview

Here an open source script that you can use as a starting point to load data into CMDB
