Depending on the type of component selected, Orion IPAM provides a number of predefined text properties to help organize your network, in addition to the ability to create URL custom links. Users have the ability to add descriptive text fields to addresses, subnets, supernets, and groups or link to external URLs.

The Orion Network Performance Monitor Custom Property Editor capabilities are not integrated with the Orion IPAM module at this time.

To create or edit an Orion IPAM custom field:

  1. Click IP Addresses in the menu bar.
  2. Click IPAM Settings.
  3. Click IPAM Custom Fields > Manage IPAM Custom Fields.
  4. If you want to add a custom field, click Add.
  5. If you want to edit an existing custom field, check the field to edit, and then click Edit.
  6. Provide a Database Column for your custom field. The Database Column is the label used wherever Orion IPAM references the custom field you are defining in the IPAM Web Console.
  7. Edit the Database Column entry, as appropriate. The value is the alphanumeric label used in the Orion IPAM table of your Orion database for the custom field you are defining. By default, Orion IPAM generates this value sequentially.
  8. Edit the Description of this field as necessary. The Description text is displayed if the custom field you are defining may be edited.
  9. Select the appropriate Field Type for the custom property. Text based or a URL linked property.
  10. Provide a Link Title for your URL link custom property. For example: a link to your IP SLA module web interface.
  11. Provide a Max String Length for your custom field. The Max String Length sets a limit to the number of characters you may use for any value of the custom field you are defining.
  12. If you want to make this custom field available to all network components defined in Orion IPAM, check Add to Groups, Supernets, and Subnets, DHCP scopes, and DHCP servers. Making this custom field available to all network components defined within Orion IPAM gives you the option to edit this field whenever you edit any network component.
  13. If you want to make this custom field available to all IP addresses monitored by Orion IPAM, check Add to IP addresses. Making this custom field available to all IP addresses monitored by Orion IPAM gives you the option to edit this field whenever you edit any IP address.
  14. When you have completed configuration of your custom field, click Save.
