Snipe-IT Asset Management Installation Documentation

Welcome to the Snipe-IT documentation hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you install Snipe-IT as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

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.
