Lists

    The Hudu admin area is accessible ONLY to your organization's admins and super admin users.

'Lists' are customizable groupings of items that can be utilized across your Hudu environment to assist with standardizing the options that are allowed to be selected. Lists can be used with various features within Hudu:

  • Inside of an Asset Layout field by selecting List Select.
    • These replaced the previous Dropdown field (deprecated in version 2.28.0 or later).
  • When setting Network Defaults for IPAM inside the Admin >> Network Management tab such as Network Statuses or Network Roles.

The sections below will introduce you to lists - their creation, organization structure, and management.

    The ability to create and utilize lists is only available on Hudu Versions 2.28.0 or later.

Creating New Lists

Lists can be created either from scratch (creating your own, fully custom list of items) or by utilizing one of our pre-built templates.

  • To create either, navigate to the Hudu Admin tab >> select Lists.
  • In the top right of the page, click the + New dropdown.
    • Select + New to create a new list from scratch.
    • Select + New List From Template to start a list from a pre-built template list.
      • If starting a list from a template, every aspect of the template is customizable by following the steps below.
  • Choose a Name for your new list.
  • Add List Items (see section below for additional information) to build your list.
  • Click Save to finish creating your list.

Creating List Items

List items are the individual options that make up your list and can be selected from. Creating list items can be done individually, or in bulk.

Adding Individual List Items

  • From the Admin >> Lists tab, select the list name that you'd like to add List Items to or create a new list from scratch or a template.
  • Under the List Items header, select the + New Item button.
  • Populate the Item Name for each option that you'd like your list to contain.
  • When finished adding list items, click the Save button down at the bottom of the page to complete your list.

Bulk Adding List Items

  • From the Admin >> Lists tab, select the list name that you'd like to add List Items to or create a new list from scratch or a template.
  • To the right of the List Items header, select Bulk Add.
  • Enter the options that you'd like your list to contain. Each option that you'd like added to your list should be written on a separate line.
    • For example, if you'd like your "Months of the Year" list to contain the options "January", "February", and "March", they should follow the format:

January

February

March

  • When finished adding list items, click the Save button down at the bottom of the page to complete your list.
