To accomplish this you have to perform this steps:
- Verify that you have a valid backup of upKeeper database.
- Run Microsoft SQL script inside Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio connected to the upKeeper database.
- Execute inventory task on selected computer/computers.
- View computer details to verify that serial number is updated.
Steps in more detail
- Verify that you have a valid backup of upKeeper database or make a backup before next step.Â Verifying backup or making a backup is not covered in this article. If not familiar with Microsoft SQL, please contact your database administrator.
- Open Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

AFTER INSERT AS
DECLARE @HistoryId int, @PropertyId int, @StringValue nvarchar(512)
SELECT @HistoryId=HistoryId, @PropertyId=PropertyId, @StringValue=StringValueÂ FROM inserted
If @PropertyId <> 34
Id = (select top 1 c.id from InventoryHistory ih join Computers c ON ih.ComputerId = c.Id WHERE ih.Id = @HistoryId)
To test the autofill function
- Open upKeeper administration web and execute an instant inventory on a computer currently connected to upKeeper.
- Open computer details on the computer you just executed instant inventory on and verify under inventory has been executed. To verify check last inventory time.
- Open computer details (general) and check the serial number field to that the new trigger has updated the field.
