In Control Compliance Suite, you can maintain assets in a CSV file, which can be imported into the infrastructure for data collection. The assets are categorized into various asset types, which are imported into Control Compliance Suite through the Create or Edit Asset Import Job wizard. The assets of any application can either belong to a predefined asset type or you can define a new asset type.
Before performing an asset import operation from a CSV file, you must first export the assets into a CSV file. You can use any third-party utility to export the assets into the CSV file. The assets that are exported into the CSV file must be arranged in a specific format. You must configure the CSV data collector before you import the assets into Control Compliance Suite.
