My installed version Orion Platform, NCM, NPM, NTA HF1, UDT: 2020.2.1
I'm trying to create a custom property that only applies to APC UPS models. I create a custom property, use Nodes as object type. Give it a random name and for the sake of testing I keep all the checkmarks on under Usage.
The next tab I select nodes. I only select APC and leave my cisco gear unchecked. I then select all nodes and submit.
In the end the Test field comes up for all my nodes regardless of Vendor. Is this how it is supposed to be used?
The field is going to show up in the table for all your nodes because the Custom Properties is for all nodes. Now, you can assign the value only to the nodes you want in several ways. One way is to make an alert that will assign the value to nodes that equal a certain vendor.
Interesting. I searched around and found this - https://support.solarwinds.com/SuccessCenter/s/article/Sending-Alerts-to-a-Custom-Property?language=...
The alert populates the email address with the custom property you have defined.
Is this what you mean ?
Also there is no way to hide custom properties under Edit Nodes correct? I know I can when I go to node details.
