Dell TechDirect - Enrich Asset Data (Enrich Data with Dell TechDirect) collects serial numbers from the assets retrieved from the saved query supplied as a trigger (or from devices selected in the asset table) and enriches the serviceTags in the Dell TechDirect adapter with them.

Note:

If the Dell TechDirect adapter is not configured, no Discovery is run for the devices on a routine basis. When the Enforcement Action is run, enrichment data persists for 48 hours and is then pruned since it was run on "Added entities only". To ensure enrichment data persists, configure the Dell TechDirect adapter.
