Every object you monitor includes a list of default properties used to describe the devices, such as IP address, host name, or MAC address. You can also create custom properties and use them to create special alerts, reports, views, and groups.

Custom properties are user-defined fields, such as country, building, asset tag, or serial number, that you can associate with monitored network objects.

Custom properties must use the Latin1 character set.

Custom property uses include:

  • 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 on the web or in a report.
  • Add a custom property and display it as an annotation on a chart.

A collection of the most commonly used properties is available out-of-the-box, but you can create custom properties to meet your precise requirements.

When a custom property is defined, you can import values for the property from a text- or comma-delimited file.

To apply a property to only a few objects, go to the Edit view in the Orion Web Console.

You may also create external records by exporting custom properties from selected objects as a spreadsheet.

When you create, edit or remove a custom property, an event is logged. These events are audited, and you can display them in Audit Events resources.
