undo archive assets
Add Option to undo an asset from Archive, so it is edible again.
Idea was made because of this problem:
We made the assets automatically archive themselves, if the device (its kbot) does not report for a period of time, then comes a 2 week of pending, where it is possible to undo the pending, but as soon as the pending is over and the asset is archived, it is no longer possibe to do anyting except changing the Kace-premade funktions (like changing the location, status, …) nor to undo the archive
Now i have alot of assets with false/none information that went archive, before i had the chanche to make sure that the informations are correct or if the device excist at all

When you need to manage Devices´complete life cycle if the MIA is set up to archive after x days of not connecting, when the machine is redeployed it duplicates because the existent asset is already linked with the archived device. Other tools offer alternatives to avoid duplicates in asset in the event of redeploying an asset or when al old machine is reconnected after a long period o time. Either the asset remains available for linkage o de duplicated asset can be automatically merge based on name or serial number.
Note: Eliminating duplicates is not an option when you are associating financial information like hardware warranty and/or purchase information.

I also have many machines that I have to mutate unnecessarily because the Kace Agent does not work properly!
