Filter using custom properties

Filter customers and devices based on custom properties. Unlike other properties, custom properties are created and applied to customers and devices manually. With custom properties, you can label and classify customers and devices within SolarWinds N-central for your own purposes. Custom properties comprise a property name and a date, a URL, text or a drop-down list that contain a selection of options.

Example custom properties can be patch group plans, warranty expiration dates, SLA Level, Sensitive Devices, and so on.

For information on custom properties, see the Custom Properties topic.
