Lookup Dell Ship and Warranty dates
Would you like to have Dell ship dates and Warranty Expiration dates in Kaseya so you can use it in reports?
Script relies on 2 custom fields that must be created before script is imported (or must be edited to use different fields). The default field names are "Warranty Exp" and "Purchased Date".
Script downloads a series of vbs scripts to 1) get system info, make a Dell API call, and then save the result to file 2) parse the result for a Ship Date (If no Ship Date is found, the script will stop here) and 3) parse the result for a Warranty Expiration Date. These results are then used to populate their respective custom fields. Can report using $DellWarranty$
Thanks guys! Warranty Master wanted $59/month for this info. A quick tweak to drop in field names and I'm set to go! MUCH appreciated!
Just started using the script. I found that in the usage documentation the second paragraph recommends creating a custom field called Date Purchased, but in the script the procedure is trying to write to field Purchased Date. Once I got that straightened out, so far it has been running great.
Justin, thanks for catching that typo! The instructions that come up when you download it are correct, so this must be in the .txt file inside the ZIP. I will locate that, fix it, and re-upload as soon as I can. Glad you figured it out!
File uploaded, might take a day or two to get approved! Thanks again!
Do you have to setup your own account with Dell first to get access to the Warranty API?
@cliff, No we took care of that for you!
Guys, PLEASE don't forget to link the fields in Lines 30 and 41. It will show as FAILED if you don't.
Does this work with hosted VSA?
@Mitch Smith, Absolutely. Even Hosted Kaseya can create custom fields.
Thanks Chris. I created the fields (they match the default script) and imported the script. ran the procedure (successfully) and then ran an audit. first a "Latest " then tried the "system" the fields are not populating. am I missing something or doing something wrong? Is it a time thing that it takes time to populate the fields?
Did the script run without errors? Make sure that those fields are linked in the script itself. Feel free to email directly to chris at Virtualadministrator.com
