Generic objects

How do I use object management?

A procedure is available to help you set up this plugin.

What is the purpose of object management?

This plugin allows you to add new types of inventory objects, integrated into the GLPI framework.

Can I integrate with other plugins?

Yes, several plugins can interact with object management:

What types of fields can be added to the GLPI object created?

The object will appear like any other object in the park, so you have a wide choice of fields available. We invite you to consult the list here

Can I add fields to an element other than the park?

No, this is not possible. Only the park can benefit from additional objects. You can use the [additional fields] plugin (../04_Plugins/Fields.en.md) if you have other specific needs.

Can additional fields be visible to everyone?

Yes. You can manage read, write, delete, etc. permissions for each field you add from check:administration > profiles , object management tab of the relevant profile.

By which other GLPI elements can the additional field be visible?

The additional fields you create are visible to other GLPI objects:

  • Use child entities
  • Use Assistance
  • Use Item in the dustbin
  • Use Notes
  • Use Historical
  • Use Templates
  • Use Financial and administratives information
  • Use Contracts
  • Use Documents
  • Use Reservations
  • Use Field unicity
  • Use Global search
  • Use Projects
  • Using Network Connections
  • Using Components
  • Use Impact analysis
Can I make an element created with the plugin reservable?

Yes. In the behaviour section of the plugin, you can tick the use reservations box. It will then be usable like any other element in your park.
