Setting the company and location of a CI
The location structure is a hierarchy of Company, Region, Site Group, and Site. Define location data on the Company and Site configuration forms, as described in Creating locations.
If you are using software license management, you must specify the company for software CIs. If you do not specify the company, the CI will not be related to a software license certificate. Other fields might be required for some license types; for example, the Site field is required for matching with a site license.
Location information is specified at the company level. To the user, the value in the Company field on a CI determines what selection data appears in the Location lists and fields.
