Asset Models

Every asset needs an asset model, so setting these up next will help you start adding assets. Asset models can be things like the make and model of a laptop or desktop machine (Apple 13″ Retina, for example). When you create new assets, you’ll select whichever asset model makes sense.

Asset models are important because they carry certain attributes which are inherited by the assets you create, such as depreciation type, end of life, and whether or not to show MAC address fields on the asset.

Individual assets can be marked as requestable, and asset models can also be marked as requestable, which allows users within Snipe-IT to request a specific asset, or any asset that matches the asset model they require.
