Associate an object with a dashboard in Splunk AR with asset tags

Register an asset and associate it with a Splunk dashboard or AR workspace using Splunk AR. Users can scan an asset tag with their mobile device and view the associated data. You can register assets with barcodes in the Splunk AR mobile app. In Splunk Cloud Gateway, you can register groups of assets and existing barcodes, or get Splunk-generated QR codes or NFC tags.

To get Splunk-generated QR codes and NFC tags and register groups of assets in Splunk Cloud Gateway, see Register assets for Splunk AR users in Splunk Cloud Gateway.
