When an asset is registered, CORA generates the asset uuid (ca_asset) by applying a black-box logic to the following six properties:
- Serial Number
- Asset Tag (appearing as Alt Asset ID)
- Host Name
- Mac Address
- DNS Name
- Asset Label (Name)
CORA applies the following weighting system to these properties to determine if a match exists. Since certain properties are considered “more important” than others, CORA will recognize a duplicate based on those values alone.
If there are some of these records crossed, in different CI (active or inactivat) then the CORA detects this as Superseded CIs and breakup the import.
