Creating Assets

The asset creation process is flexible. Through the Asset->Asset List submenu, previously created assets can be listed as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 - Listing previously created assets

New assets dialog interface can be shown by pressing New Assets button. Figure 2 shows new asset dialog for a user with root role. Different roles will see different components according to their privileges. For example while a root user can select the company under which the assets will be created, a company administrator can only create assets under his/her own company, which is natural.
