Managing resource information in GLPI

Administration and Setup

The Administration and Setup sections of the main menu help you configure and manage your GLPI system. The Administration menu lets you configure users and groups for GLPI. Also, you can implement logging and create snapshots of the database. The Setup menu lets you configure global settings for notifications, authentication, mail gateways, document types, external links, and and other features.


This short tour has only touched the surface of the many features you'll find within the GLPI open source asset management and helpdesk system. In addition to a wide range of GLPI built-in features, additional options are available through external plugins. GLPI provides online documentation in many languages, and you can always ask for help in an active community forum.

GLPI is easy to implement and has a short learning curve for the end user. On the other hand, system administrators will find more than enough options for customizing the system.
