Nodes With Empty Custom Properties

Example report for showing nodes that have priority Custom Properties not filled in. Empty values means that anywhere you are using that custom property will not be as effective because those nodes won't apply. For example, in the report we are using a CP titled "Decommissioned_Date" which we may be using in an alert. That alert won't catch any of these devices due to the field not being filled out. Use a similar report in your environment to find devices that may be escaping your filtering, alerting, other reporting, etc.

I use some I made called Severity and Group that are used within alerting. If they are not filled in the node won't alert because those are needed. I put two workarounds in place to prevent that. In the alerting condition you can also add If custom property = Blank (It might be Null, but you get the idea) then that still matches. Also I set up an alert that is scheduled to run once per day that looks for blank custom properties and fills them in with default values that I chose.

Excellent @bobmarley! Love it! I went back in and added screenshots, but yours definitely build on the idea!
