Troubleshooting

If you receive an error such as "This asset is part of an assembly and cannot be moved":
Ensure the asset being moved is not a child asset of a different asset.
If it is a child asset, the parent asset will need to be moved.

Alternatively, the child asset can be disassociated from the parent asset. 

IMPORTANT: Please check with Technical Helpdesk before completing this process!

  1. First, ensure that this asset NEEDS to be removed from the parent asset.

  2. Open the parent asset and scroll down to the Relationships panel. You should see the child asset listed underneath the parent asset:

  3. Next, click the pencil icon in the top-right corner of the Relationships screen:

  4. Hover over the asset you would like to remove. A red X will appear to the right of the name of the asset.

  5. Click the red X to remove the child asset from the parent asset.

  6. Now, you should be able to move the asset to a different account.
