In order to be able to add custom barcodes to Objects, an Instance Admin needs to add the $BARCODE property to the object type for which barcodes are needed.
The barcode functionality is disabled by default in the ELN UI. This can be enabled by a lab manager or a group admin with admin right to edit the Settings, as shown below.
After enabling the option, please refresh your browser. The Barcodes/QR Codes Generator will be shown in the main menu under Utilities and a barcode icon will be added above the menu.
Information on how to use the Barcode functionality in openBIS can be found here: Barcodes
