Last updated on MARCH 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Asset Management - Version 12.0.0 to 12.2 [Release 12 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When attempting to define the asset number with same asset number of previously entered and deactivated asset, the following error occurs:

Insert procedure failed with the following error message: You have passed an instance_number which is already in use.

Same error is coming if user tries to create same asset number in a different organization

Why The asset number deactivation doesn't overcome the restriction of asset number uniqueness across the instance?
