I’ve been trying to sort this out, but I haven’t been successful. What I want to do is create fixed assets for Mowers, Computers, etc - each of these machines have serial numbers (and support contracts linked to them). When I try to create the initial item to be used as the asset, ticking the box “fixed asset” immediately hides the serial number fields. There’s another thread about this, but it’s gone ignored for some time.
I’ve also opened a GitHub issue https://github.com/frappe/erpnext/issues/25890
Looking back, it looks like this is expected to work - so I’m questioning if I’m doing something wrong or if this is indeed a regression / bug. Can someone help validate that they’re able to create a fixed asset with a serial or that this isn’t how serial numbers are intended to be used for Assets?
I even went so far as to try modifying the Item DocType, but I don’t think I understand what needs to be changed to make it work!
I also wanted to add I’ve tried this on the latest Dev branch, as well as 13.4 and 13.5 releases.
