When creating a new Asset, the 'Asset Family' field is mandatory yet grayed out or readonly on the form.

Question:

How to populate the Asset Family field when you create a new asset?  

Answer:

By design the Asset Family field on APM (aka ITAM) is read only. This is because the Asset Family is directly linked to the Asset Model. So when creating a new Asset, the Asset Family is pulled and populated from the linked Asset Model.
