Marking Assets and Contracts as retired

When a Computer, a Inventory Item becomes retired or a Contract is not actual anymore, you mark its record as retired.

Retired Computer, Inventory Item and Contract records disappear from the Select Asset and Select Contract windows and cannot be edited, you can only view them.

Typically, you mark Computer, Inventory Item or Contract records as retired by executing the corresponding Retire actions. If a Computer, Inventory Item, or Software License is chosen in the Associated CI field of the Asset record, when you perform this action for the Asset, the associated configuration item becomes also retired.
