Setting values for required meta fields

When a required meta field is defined for a device object, a column automatically displays on the Device Manager pane. The column displays the value for each device. When the required meta field lacks a value, an exclamation mark displays, indicating that you must set the value.

When a meta field is required for devices, you must assign an interface template to devices. If a device lacks a meta field value, a conflict symbol is displayed, and you cannot assign an interface template to it. You must define a value for the meta field for the device before you can assign an interface template to it.

See also Meta Fields.

To set values for required meta fields:
  1. Go to Device Manager > Device & Groups.
  2. In the toolbar, select Table View from the dropdown menu.

    The Edit Device pane is displayed.
