View Asset Level at a Glance

Quickly learn an asset’s position in a hierarchy of assets by glancing at its Asset Level field.

On assets that don’t have a parent or child assets defined, the asset level is 1. Assets that have settled down and started an asset family, on the other hand, list an asset level that reflects their position in the hierarchy: 1 for the root asset, 2 for the child assets of the root asset, 3 for their children, and so forth.

You can always see an asset’s child assets in the Child Assets related list, and its parent and root assets in the Parent Asset and Root Asset fields.


On assets created before Summer ’17 that are part of an asset hierarchy, the asset level defaults to –1. Once the asset record is updated, the asset level is calculated and automatically updated for all assets in the hierarchy.
