 All Orion product installations have access to the Custom Property Editor, which allows you to add a custom property to any monitored device. Custom properties are additional fields, such as country, building, asset tag, or serial number, that you can define and store in your Orion database. After properties are added, they are available for display and filtering both within the IPAM Web Console and within the Report Writer application. A few more examples of how custom properties may be used are as follows:

  • Add information to nodes, such as contact, owner, or support contract.
  • Add a custom property that is used as an account limitation on nodes.
  • Add a custom property to nodes for grouping them on the web or in a report.
  • Add a custom property and display it as an annotation on a chart.

Custom Property Editor lets you choose from a provided collection of the most commonly used properties, or you can easily and efficiently build your own custom properties. For more information, see Creating a Custom Property.

After your custom property is defined, the Import Wizard allows you to populate your new property from either a text- or comma-delimited file. For more information, see Importing Custom Property Data.

Alternatively, if you only have a few individual changes or additions, you may choose to make those changes using the Edit view. For more information, see Editing Custom Properties.
