  6. If your organization requires a prefix or a suffix for the asset number, specify a value.
  7. Click Generate Asset.
    The Assets table is populated with assets based on your input.
  8. Optional: For assets that are generated with serial numbers, complete the serial numbers so that each asset has the correct unique serial number.

    The assets are created based on the asset template.
