Software Licence management

CMDB is very closed to be a complete license management backend: There is just a way needed to add for example a MS volume licensing contract like an inventory. Everytime a licence gets used as an CI the counter gets down. This is needed in nearly all companies, they spend big effort on licencse management and auditing.

Cable Management for CIs

I suggest to support cable management for CIs.

 

Currently it's very dificult to document the relation of CIs on a connector level.

 

I don't know if the OTRS CMDB was meant for this, but where else would you document the cable linking if you already have all the devices in your CMDB ?

Maybe also being able to quickly “Link Ticket” to a item in this box would be good.

CMDB Links should show up as pages

In OTRS 2.4.9 we have a big CMDB and some of the CIs have hundreds or even thousands of relations. When trying to see one of those CIs apache takes a lot time (some times up to 10 minutes) to build the configuration and show it up on the screen so it times out. It would be great if the CMDB relations where shown up in pages so apache can paint the first page and continue building the rest of the pages in the background... more »
