Create or Edit a Sub-Resource

If you have appropriate rights, you can create and edit sub-resources. Sub-resources are components of a resource that, like resources, have their own attributes and report status types.

When you create or edit sub-resources, you must provide a name and indicate the sub-resource type. The statuses that sub-resources can report are determined by its type. Additionally, you can enter notes and identify which sub-resource is primary for each resource. You may be required to enter address and contact details for sub-resources, which can be Required, Optional, or Not Allowed.


Before you begin, make sure you have the appropriate sub-resource types and status types set up.
