All assets need to be associated with a product or category. This is to help organise groups of assets together, provides a basic form of categorisation, and is useful for reporting/analytics.

  • Active: This product/category is usable.
  • Deleted: This removes the product/category from SAM.
  • Inactive: This retains the product/category in the database in case you wish to reactive at a later time.

For ease of use, products/categories can also be added directly when adding new assets.
