This article describes where to find the ID/PAC couple and how to use them
How does it work?
A device has a unique Identifier called Device ID. It is also related to another unique number called PAC (Porting Authorization Code). The PAC proves the ownership of a device (ownership title) and only the current device owner knows it.
The ID-PAC couple is mandatory for device registration or transfer. As soon as the device is registered or transfered, the PAC will change (one-time only code).
Where to find the PAC?
If you need to retrieve a device’s current PAC number, access the Device information page:
- In the Device tab, enter the device identifier and filter.
- Click on the device identifier to access its information page.
- The PAC is shown there.
Anyone detaining a PAC may register a device that is yours. Please refrain from having it published or printed or engraved on or near a device.
Exporting the ID/PAC info for a device type
The user might find interesting to export in an CSV file the list of all ID/PAC couples of a given device type, in order to later import them elsewhere. For that, please proceed as follow:
- Find the desired Device Type
- Click on Associated devices tab on the left side menu
- Click on Export devices ID/PAC button
