@David1943UK Welcome to HP Community!
If you are referring to the printer claim code, here's all you need to know about the same:
(If that's not what you mean, please elaborate, so I can help you better)
Use the Printer Claim Code to add your printer to an HP Connected account and access additional services supported by your printer, such as Instant Ink or Print Anywhere. You do not need a Printer Claim Code to use the basic functions of your printer, such as setting up, scanning, or printing.
To find your Printer Claim Code, print a Web Services Information page from the printer's built-in webpage.
Send a test print job from any device on your network to make sure the printer is connected and can print.
You cannot use Web Services or get your Printer Claim Code if your printer is not connected to your wireless network. A USB connection does not work.
Type the printer IP address into a web browser on any device connected to your network to open the printer's built-in website.
To find your printer IP address:
From the touchscreen control panel: Touch the Wireless icon .
From the HP Smart app: Click Printer Settings, and then click Printer Information.
From the printed network report: Press the Information button to print an information page.
From the printer website, find the Web Services menu, and then click Print Info Page or Print Information Sheet.
Find the Printer Code or Printer Claim Code on the page that prints.
If the information page only has the printer's email address, remove and then re-enable Web Services. A new information page prints with the Claim Code.
Add your printer to HP Connected using the Printer Claim Code.
If an Invalid Claim Code or other error message displays, remove and then re-enable Web Services before trying again.
