    Description

     

    Until Service Desk 2016.1, when viewing the Asset details and using hyperlink (please check the below screenshot - when the Asset has been selected from the drop down list), you could see the details of the Asset in the popup window. The option of right click was also available to view the details of the Asset in the new window.

    Change of behavior

     

    From Service Desk 2016.2, the behavior has changed as the Asset are now processes (they have the workflows - please check the screenshot) and if you click hyperlink to view the details of already selected Asset, it will give you a popup window with question (as on the screenshot).

    "You have made changes to the current form and if you proceed you will lose those changes.

    Are you sure you want to carry out this action?"

     

    If you carry on, you will be moved to the Asset (Service) window but all the changes from the previous window (e.g. Incident), will be lost.

    Recommendation

     

    In this case, from Service Desk 2016.2, it is recommended to use right-click on the Asset to view the Asset details in the new window.

    If there is no Asset selected, as in previous versions of Service Desk, as well in the newest release the popup to add new Asset (Configuration Item) is still available (please check the below screenshot).
