Is there a way to automatically map a custom field based on another attribute within Inventory. My use case is tracking whether a machine is a physical box versus a VM. ie, if manufacturer does not equal VMWare, set CustomField Type=Physical; if manufacturer equal VMWare, set CustomField Type=Virtual.
Currently I am exporting VMs from vCenter, and using the import wizard to set the CustomField for VM, and then taking the difference between the export and what PDQ has and setting the rest to physical. It gets a bit more complicated due to tracking which physical datacenter the VMs are located in, which we have based on a naming convention (if name = xx set customfield DataCenter = DC1, if name = yy set customfield DataCenter=DC2)
If this is not possible, please consider this a feature request.
