Warranty check

About Device42

Device42 is a comprehensive data center inventory management and IP Address management software that integrates centralized password management, impact charts and applications mappings with IT asset management.

Intro

This script checks warranty status for Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo and Meraki manufactured devices stored in Device42.

Prerequisites

In order for this script to check warranty status of the device, the device must have hardware model and serial number entered in Device42. Dell Warranty Status API key must be acquired as well.

Plans

  • Include life_cycle event to register the purchase date. Unfortunately it can’t can done now, as I can’t easily compare purchases with the information found at dell. The life_cycle event doesn’t give back the serial, only the devicename. It would be nice if the serial_no could be added to the output of GET /api/1.0/lifecycle_event/

Gotchas

  • If either hardware model or serial # is missing, warranty status won't be checked for device.
  • IBM script points to warranty info not related to the SKU, serial given
  • If a Meraki product has a licence with a renewal required state, the expiration date will be set to the current date
