Creating Custom Types - Which are copies of existing types


Has anyone been able to create a new Asset Type, which is basically a copy of an default type (e.g. Service)?

I would like to create more specific type options, but my custom types do not have all the default attributes of the default type and therefore are not what I need to utilize.


Hi Raymond,
can you not just extend the Service AssetType to your liking?

Hi Gerald,

I was concerned about being impacted by future changes if extending the default type.

Did you have a specific ‘extending’ method/process in mind? I am just digging into custom types and hitting a few speed bumps, so any insights are appreciated. Although the documentation explains the ‘steps’ to create a custom type, there are gaps in ‘why’ something is needed or even examples of what a custom type will look like when specific selections/configuration are done.
