How to provide surveillance categories with XLS and PRIS?

+1 vote
Is it possible to provide a 'Surveillance Categories' in the Excel-sheet of PRIS ?

I see it is possible to use asset_categortory in the Excelsheet.

Thanks Marcel.
Which cat_ values are there?
I tried serveral names, like: cat_node, cat_onnode,cat_categories, cat_id.
When I do a manual add of 'surveillance categories' I see with a REST url:
-<categories id="18" name="Ontwikkeling/test/acceptatie">

Pris excel example:

column name: cat_dns
cell content: DNS

For all your DNS servers write DNS into the column cat_dns and Pris will set this surveillance category onto the node.

See here:
Thanks. Now I use column name:Cat_Surveillance with cell content:Aaaa,Bbbb,Cccc and this works.
I'm happy to hear that. Please mark your thread as answered. Thanks.
