My client has a customized format on asset tag, which consist of 4 parts:
- Hardware Type (e.g. WL0)
- City (e.g. CNHK)
- Number (e.g. 0001)
- Business Unit (e.g. L)
And the requirement is that the number part of the asset should be able to automatically assigned according to other 3 parts (Hardware Type, City & Business Unit). For example, when the client already having 3 assets with asset tag WL0CNHK0001L, WL0CNHK0002L & WD0CNHK0001L, if they would like to add an new asset with “WL0” as Hardware Type, “CNHK” as City and “L” as Business Unit, the system should be able to assigned the largest number + 1 as Number according to the other 3 parts in the asset tag so the asset tag for the new asset will be WL0CNHK0003L and then I can use API to update the asset tag.
May I know if there are any methods to apply this auto numbering on asset tag?
