Custom properties are additional fields, such as country, building, asset tag, or serial number, that you can define and store in your SolarWinds Orion database. After properties are added, you can view or filter using them.

  1. When editing or adding an alert, click Add Action in the Trigger or Reset Action section of the Alert Wizard.

  2. Select the Change Custom Property option, and then click Configure Action.
  3. Under Custom Property Settings, select the custom property and enter the value you want to change it to.
  4. Schedule the action by selecting Time of Day > Use special Time of Day schedule for this action . This schedule only applies to the alert action you are editing.

    This is often used to prevent an action from occurring during specific windows.

  5. Select how frequently this action occurs for each triggered alert in Execution Settings.

  6. Click Add Action.

The action is added to the trigger or reset action list, and you can test the action using the Simulate button. When the trigger or reset conditions of the alert are met, the value of the custom property you selected changes.
