Filter using custom device properties

Filter devices based on custom properties. Unlike other properties, custom device properties are created and applied to devices manually, rather than retrieved from the device itself. With custom properties, you can label and classify devices within MSP N-central for your own purposes. Custom properties comprise a property name and a date, a URL or text.

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

For information on adding custom properties, see Adding Custom Device Properties.

  5. Click Preview to see how the filter is working.

The filter is added to the filters list and ready to use in MSP N-central including in service templates, scheduled tasks and Dashboards.
