Menu path: UMS Administration > Global Configuration > Device Attributes

In this area, you can set up additional attributes for devices.

The additional device attributes are used when displaying device system information, in views, and in searches.
From UMS Version 5.07.100, attributes with set values can be defined, e.g. to avoid typing errors when entering the values. To do this, select the “List” attribute type and give the values together with any descriptions under List entries.

Click on to set up a new device attribute.

  • Name: Name of the attribute
  • Type: Data type of the attribute
    Possible values:
    String: A sequence of letters, numbers, and special characters is expected.
    List: A list of values is provided for selection. These values are specified as shown below:
    List entries
    - Value: Name of the predefined value
    - Description: Optional description of the value
    Number: A numerical value is expected.
    Date: A date is expected.
  • Description: Optional description of the attribute

Using the up and down arrows, you can change the order of the additional attributes.

In the device system information display, you can give the values of the attributes.
