The Custom Property Editor does not currently allow you to rename a custom property by merely changing its title.
It is possible, however, to create a new custom property with the new title and then copy all values assigned for the previously named custom property to the newly defined custom property, as shown in the following procedure.

To effectively "rename" a custom property:

  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Grouping and Access Control > Custom Property Editor.
  2. Click Add Custom Property.
  3. Select Build a Custom Property from scratch.
  4. In the Property Definition area, complete the following steps:
    1. In the Add Property to field, select the type of object to which you are applying the new custom property.
    2. In the Property Name field, provide a name for the new custom property.
      Note: This is the new title of your existing custom property.
    3. In the Property Type field, select the value type of the existing custom property that you are renaming.
    4. If the Property Type is Text, provide an appropriate total character count in the Max Text length field.
    5. Click OK.
  5. If you are renaming a node custom property, click Nodes.
  6. If you are renaming a volume custom property, click Volumes.
  7. Select the entire contents of the column corresponding to the existing custom property that you are renaming.
  8. Click Edit > Copy.
    Note: Ctrl + C does not work in all environments.
  9. Click the new custom property title, and then Click Edit > Paste.
  10. Click Remove.
  11. Select the old custom property, and then click OK.

Applies to: Versions of Orion Platform earlier than 2012.2.
                   For Orion Platform 2012.2 and later, refer to Renaming a Custom Property via the Orion Web Console in SAM.
