Looking to compare latest NPM features with previous versions of NPM?
The NPM new feature summary offers a comparison of new features and improvements offered with this release.
Custom properties are user-defined fields, such as country, building, asset tag, or serial number, that you can associate with monitored network objects.
This example shows how to create the Device_Owner custom property and assign it to multiple nodes. You can use this example to create an application owner, business service owner, or server type owner.
For examples of how other SolarWinds users implement custom properties, see this thwack post.
The selected nodes now have a responsible person (Owner) and email address assigned to them. The custom properties can be used for creating alerts and reports.
To assign other values for the custom property to nodes, click Add More, and repeat steps 6-9.
You can see all custom properties assigned to a node in the Custom Properties for Nodes resource on the Node Details view.
You can also apply custom properties by directly editing the node properties.
