Controlling the Auto-Generation of Identifiers

You can disable the auto-generation of the following identifiers:

  • IT Asset s > Asset Tag— This identifier applies to IT assets: Computers, Inventory Items, Software Licenses, and Library Items.

  • IT Assets > Barcode— This identifier applies to IT assets: Computers, Inventory Items, Software Licenses, and Library Items.

    NOTE: Asset tags and barcodes are unique throughout all IT assets, i.e. each identifier is unique throughout Computers, Inventory Items, Software Licenses, and Library Items in your database.

  • Purchasing > Purchase Order Number — This identifier applies only to Purchase Orders
