How do I autogenerate a Primark key or asset ID for my CIs?

David Kelly

I need a unique identifier for my assets or CIs

 

I had been using Name as the unique index but recently I've spotted a flaw in this.  What if I make an asset end of life but its replacement will be named the same.  I will have 2 instances of the same name in my DB, one as deployed and one as end of life.


I'm now thinking I'd like to utilize asset ID but to keep track of this I want Remedy to autogenerate a new ID each time I add a new asset

 

Can anyone help or give me suggestions on this please?
