    I have created a Purchase Order for a setup of computers purchased from a vendor. I can tie the inventoried computer as a Configuration Item to the PO, thus in theory connecting the new computer to a possible purchase date.
    Currently, it looks like in Inventory - Computers - Lifecycle - Purchase can only be updated manually or by API which is difficult to manage when needing to update many computers.
    When I attach a computer to a Purchase Order, can the Inventory Item be automatically updated to reflect the Purchase Date to keep track of assets?

    What problem will this feature solve?:
