Item Types

Item Types are used to identify the different Items in My Items. By combining a Vendor and a Service, Item Types are defined. Each Item belongs to 1 single Item Type. You do not need to give an Item Type a unique name, their unique combination of a Vendor and a Service give its name.
Item Types are a crucial element in SSP. They are the key identifier to upload assets, and are also used in the WebStore, allowing a User to replace a device, by clicking on any existing device, selected from his Item Types.

When setting up an Item Type, you can define Adaptors. Adaptors create a link between the items and a selected Form in SSP. The Adaptor will link from the item to the form, pre-filling selected fields with information from the Item.

The Item Type admin page can be accessed by selecting the Item Types section in the My Items Admin Panel:
