Asset Tags

Asset tags are the unique identifier of an asset within the Snipe-IT system. No two assets can have the same asset tag - which makes sense, since that could get really confusing.

Generate Auto-Incrementing IDs

If this is selected, Snipe-IT will pre-populate the Create Asset form with the next logical asset tag.

Prefix (optional)

If your asset tags should have a prefix, enter it here.

Length of Asset Tags

This setting will standardize the length of the asset tag, for example, asset tag 123 will become 000000123 if you had 9 set here. This helps prevent some sorting issues when sorting by asset tag, since the database otherwise doesn't know how to logically sort tags that have a mix of numbers and letters of varying lengths.
