Managing ownership of a workplace


Every workplace has an ownership regarding your organization. When you create a workplace, you assign the ownership inside the edit form. However, if you want to assign an existing workplace item to different owners, you must use the Change Ownership action. A wizard will guide you through the required steps where you can also change the ownership of all assets that are assigned to the corresponding workplace item.


  1. Go to the Workplaces navigation item in the Assets application.
  2. Select the workplace items where you want to change ownership.
  3. Click the Change Ownership action.
  4. Select the organizational unit, location and cost center which you want to set as new owners.
  5. Select the Changing ownership will also affect all related peripheral devices checkbox if you also want to reassign related assets to new owners.
  6. Apply your changes.


  1. System assigns the selected owners as ownership of the selected workplaces.
  2. System assigns all assets of the selected workplaces to the same owners (if checkbox was selected).
