Adding a new asset

Last Updated: Aug 20, 2019 02:27PM CEST
When you set up your Detectify account for the first time, you are prompted to add a domain. You can add more assets, such as domains or IP addresses, at any point.



In Asset Inventory, you can choose to either add an asset manually, or import it using your Google Analytics account.




Add Asset Manually
Click the Add Manually button. You will be prompted with the following modal:



Input the domain name or IP address to the asset you want to add, and click Next.



You will now be prompted to verify your asset ownership. This can be done by either the default method of uploading a .txt file to the specified catalogue, or by one of our other verification methods. You can read more about verification on this page.



Once you've verified the new asset, you will receive a confirmation message.



Your new asset will now appear in the list of root assets in the Asset Inventory. If you have many root assets, you can find it faster by searching for it.





Import Assets from Google Analytics
To import an asset from Google Analytics, you need to have the asset connected to your Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager account, and the corresponding tracking code must be present on your asset's root page. Click on the Use Google Analytics button, and when prompted, sign in with your Google account.

You will be presented with a list of available assets based on what is connected to your Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager account. By selecting an asset, we will verify that the correct tracking code is present on the asset's root page, and show if the asset could be verified or not. Once you've selected the asset or assets that you want to add, click Done. 



Your new asset will now appear in the list of root assets in the Asset Inventory. If you have many root assets, you can find it faster by searching for it.



Troubleshooting 
If the asset you want to import with Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager does not appear in the list, it is likely because you are not using an appropriate combination of Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, tracking codes, or user permissions.

For example, if your asset is added to your Google Tag Manager account and the asset is using a tracking code from Google Tag Manager, you will need to have the user permissions necessary to access the Google Tag Manager account in order to add the asset (i.e. only having access to Google Analytics will not suffice for verification).
