After you have successfully installed the OTbase Asset Lookup Chrome Extension, CVE identifiers and Siemens product codes will automatically be amended by an OTbase icon.

Authentication and session management
Note that while you don't have to have an OTbase Inventory session open in your browser, you will need to initially authenticate with OTbase Inventory. This is accomplished by the regular authentication dialog from OTbase Inventory. Thereafter, your results we be displayed.
The inactivity timer for the account you are using is in effect. This means that you will be asked to re-authenticate after a certain period of inactivity that is configured for the account you are using.
Searching for IP addresses, serial numbers etc.
You can also search for various other items besides CVEs and Siemens products:
- IP addresses
- MAC addresses
- OTbase device IDs
- host names and DNS names
- serial numbers
- hardware product names
- software product names
- location identifiers and location names
In order to execute a search for any of these items, mark the respective term on the web page you are viewing and bring up the context menu with right click. Then, click on "Search in OTbase".
A new window will pop up with the results. In our example, the search returned results both for hardware products and for software products.
You can then use the well-known drill-down features of OTbase Inventory. In our example, we want to examine the 1 HP model of the PowerFlex 525. We do so by clicking on the product link, which brings up the hardware product profile:
