Is there a way to edit the Purchases required fields under the asset management section?

I want to add our purchase order logs into KACE, one of the required fields is quantity. We do not record this in the spreadsheet i am uploading. Is there a way to make this field not required?

So having looked at the Purchase asset type, the answer is no. KACE are dictating which fields you must have, as clearly their product management know better than we do. Just like they did with Asset Status, but let’s not get into that. To be fair, the purchase asset type is there to store software license purchases and is linked in the software license asset type, hence it makes sense to have an amount in the asset.

My advice would be to create a fresh asset type, called Hardware Purchase, or whatever you want. Add in all the fields you need and then import your purchases into that asset type. If that does not work, then come back to me and we will see if we can create a ticket rule to switch the amount field in the purchase asset type to make it no longer mandatory, but that is neither advised or supported.

As a WORKAROUND to allow you to import your assets if you really want to, create a ticket rule as in this image, this will set the field to optional, you can then import if that is where you want your purchases stored
