This page provides information on how to view and manage assets in Lansweeper's Inventory, including creating custom and advanced filter views, managing views, exporting views, and viewing assets with issues or vulnerabilities.


Go to Lansweeper Site's Inventory to view the assets in your network.

Want to learn more about all the assets Lansweeper can scan in your network? Check out What We Discover.

In All assets, you can view all of your assets from every installation that is linked to your site, or browse a variety of pre-configured views based on specific search criteria.

There are a variety of configuration options available to view your assets in a structure that best suits your unique environment. You can:

The Customize and Advanced filter views can be combined to create customized views adapted to your specific needs.

Create a custom view

Organize your asset inventory to best suit your unique environment by creating custom views. Custom views allow you to create a personalized view of your data by displaying the information you require in the format your desire.

To create a custom view:

  1. In Inventory, select Customize view.
  2. Under Fixed columns, toggle the fixed columns that you want to display On or Off. Select and hold the column to reorder it.
  3. Under Scrollable columns, hover over a column and select X to remove it, or select and hold the column to reorder it.
  4. Under Available columns, use the search to find the column you want to add, then click to add it to your custom view.
  5. Select Apply.
  6. If you're happy with the view, select Unsaved View > Save view and Configurations. If you'd like to revert to the previous view, select Restore the default value.
  7. Enter a name for your view. You can also add a description.
  8. Select Save.

Your view is added to Inventory > Custom views.

You can add normalized data or scanned data to your custom views. The normalized fields contain a NORMALIZED tag. Although you can create custom views with scanned data, we recommend using the normalized version for proper organization and aggregation.

Sort by multiple columns

  1. Go to Inventory and select any view you want to display.
  2. Select a second column you want to sort scanned assets by. Assets are sorted by Name by default.
  3. Optionally, select more columns to sort your list of assets by. You can sort assets by up to 4 different columns at the same time. 
    Your list of scanned assets will be sorted by the selected columns, prioritizing those selected first.
  4. Select Unsaved View > Save view and Configurations.
  5. Enter a name for your view. You can also add a description.
  6. Select Save.
    You can remove a sorted column by selecting X .

Create an advanced filter view

Discover specific data within your inventory by creating advanced filters. Advanced filters allow you to easily find assets based on the fields, operations, and values you require. 

To create an advanced filter view:

  1. In Inventory, select Advanced filter view.
  2. Enter a field name or select the arrow to view a list of the pre-configured and custom fields available. 
  3. Select an operation.
  4. Enter a value. Either:
    • Choose from the list of predefined values.
    • Create new values by selecting Change. Enter your value then select Add filter value if you wish to add additional values, and select Apply values once you're done.
  5. Select + to add additional filters.
  6. Select Apply.
  7. If you're happy with the view, select Unsaved View> Save view and Configurations. If you'd like to revert to the previous view, select Restore the default value.
  8. Enter a name for your view. You can also add a description.
  9. Select Save.

Your view is added to Inventory > Custom view.

Manage a custom view

Once a custom view is created, you can edit, rename, share, or delete the view as needed.

To manage a custom view:

  1. In Inventory, select Custom views.
  2. Select the view you wish to edit.
  3. Select Custom view. From there, you can edit, rename, share, or delete the view.
All saved views are private by default. If you want to share your views with other users, you can use the Share view option to grant users access to your view.

Export view

Share your custom views by exporting the view in the format that best suits your environment.

To export a view:

  1. In Inventory, go to Export view.
  2. Select the export type:
    • Standard export: Download the first 10,000 results automatically. Your file will start downloading once you select Export.
    • Full export: Download all of the results. You'll receive an email with the attached file once you select Export.
  3. Select CSV file or XSLX file for the file type.
  4. Select Export.
