    QUESTION:

    How can we add additional attribute to device in BCM.


     


    ANSWER:


    A new field could be added to the Device attribute from Global setting->Addtional Device Attribute, and you could then update this field against all the existing devices managed by BCM

    For Example

    We add the "Hardware Type" field to Additional device attributes

    User-added image

    "Hardware Type" will then  appears in the customized section of the Properties Window of that device 

    User-added image

    We then create a  .csv with the new "Hardware type"  field also give the required details 

    User-added image


    Browse to the device group you would want to import the details to. Right Click on the device group->import the .csv
    The new field from the .csv shows under "Source Column" , and you need to then map it to the "Hardware Typefrom the drop down

    User-added image



    The customised attribute will get updated by the details it imports from the .csv file
