Photo of items (computer, monitor, network, device)

A photo of items (computer, monitor, network, device) would be useful.

Perhaps a photo per model.

An example can be found here https://discoict.com.au/features/device-management.aspx


On GLPI 9.3, it is possible to add pictures on models.

This is not (yet) displayed in the item form.

whao !!! very nice thank you !!

allow me to go further into details and take the example of "monitors"

in GLPI 9.1 I noticed that some technical informations are stored for each equipments but they should be stored one time in the model of this equipment.

In GLPI 9.3-dev (online demo) it's already better I can see that weight, depth, power consumption have been moved into the model but some informations are still in the inventory

- size -> should be " diagonal size" 

- microphone

- speakers

- sub-d -> should be a number

- bnc -> should be a number

- dvi-> should be a number

- pivot

- hdmi-> should be a number + versionning

- displayport-> should be a number + versionning

and you can add

- external size (not the diagonal)

I can make a request in github if this is necessary.

Let' s push the idea :

Those information needs to be keyed in manually in each glpi in each company which is a waste or resources but they are very important / mandatory for remote support.

Acentralized structure could collect those informations from the community and automatically distribute them back or include them in fusion inventory. I realize that this require development and an infrastructure+bandwidth. (maybe not so much if you can download this database by p2p but I don' t know if it' s possible)

It could be an opportunity for the small business that don' t have the budget to pay official support to be able to give back to the project.

That' s also an opportunity to monetize this feature.

- from the community ? maybe an annual subscription fee to cover the infrastructure ?(but seems incompatible with open source style)

- maybe ask the brands a subscription to make sure their hardware is properly documented in GLPI with a flag "certified information from the brand directly" ..etc...

- this can be applied to any physical specifications that are undetectable by fusion inventory : phones, laptops, desktops, switches, routers, servers, racks, pbx, firewalls...


Done in GLPI 10
