If you're working with the new RT-Extension-Assets release candidate 
mentioned here:


then there are a few ways. The easiest is to search for the asset first. 
Then from the asset display page the Actions menu has a "Create linked 
ticket" action that will handle the linking.

If you already have a ticket, you can go to the links page and in Refers 
To (or other) type "asset:4" and it will link to asset with the id 4.

As for connecting the requestor to the asset, they will likely have a 
role on the asset like "Held By". If you add the UserAssets portlet to 
the User Summary page, the assets will show up there. Details on this 
config are in the README.

We'll have more docs when the official release comes out.
