Lifecycle Manager labels a hardware record as a “duplicate asset” as a result of multiple records of hardware with the same serial number (e.g., ABC1234) or MAC address syncing from the same integration (e.g., Datto RMM).
Lifecycle Manager uses the most recent record to ensure we are using the latest data in the case of these duplicate assets.
Matching duplicate assets from your integrations are grouped together based on serial numbers and MAC addresses, which helps ensure your asset count is accurate.
This means your account's data becomes more accurate, reports become more precise as they include enhanced information from the data we receive from all of your connected integrations.
Lifecycle Manager is designed to detect duplicate asset entries syncing in from your connected integrations and notifying you when they appear.
