Business value

This feature makes it easier to create unique device properties and associate them with different devices. The ability to manage different types of devices and easily keep track of key product details, usage, and service information is important to deliver effective service. Additionally, it becomes easier to track changes to the device properties over time.

Feature details

Device properties allow customers to easily define the different attributes that characterize a device. Common examples can include make, model, serial number, size, dimensions, and last service date. This feature also allows you to display properties dynamically based on the device and keeps track of how device properties change over time, like an audit.

Understanding device properties is a foundational capability that enables future capabilities like usage-based maintenance.
