After you define your custom properties, the Custom Property Editor Import tool assists in populating the custom property data. For example, you may already possess a spreadsheet listing the asset tags of all your network nodes, and you would like to have this information available for reporting and publication in the Web Console. In this scenario, Asset Tag is added as a custom property, and then the import wizard is used to populate the asset tag values from the spreadsheet. The following steps outline the process for importing custom properties data.

  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Grouping and Access Control > Custom Property Editor.
  2. Click File > Import, and then select Import from Comma Delimited File or Import from Text File as appropriate.
  3. Navigate to the file that contains your custom property data.
  4. Select the file that contains your custom property data, and then click Open.
  5. Select the delimiter that separates the data in your file.
  6. If your data file contains a header row, check First row contains field names.
  7. Specify the characters that may surround text fields in your file, and then click Next.
  8. Select the data table that has the custom properties into which you want to import your data, and then click Next.
  9. Use the drop-down menus to select the key field from your file on the left and the corresponding field of the table on the right.

    Depending on your file data, you may need to specify multiple key fields so that the import wizard properly matches your data to the table fields.

  10. Click Next.
  11. Specify the fields from your file on the left that you want to import by clicking corresponding blank cell on the right, and then select the target field that you want your data field to populate.

    Click the cell to enable a menu. Use the menu items to select the target field that you want your data to populate.

  12. If you have specified all cell matches between your data and the Orion Platform database, click Import.
  13. If your import is successful, confirm the count of successfully imported rows, and then click OK.
