How can we add additional attribute to device in BCM.
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
We add the "Hardware Type" field to Additional device attributes
"Hardware Type" will then appears in the customized section of the Properties Window of that device
We then create a .csv with the new "Hardware type" field also give the required details
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 Type" from the drop down
The customised attribute will get updated by the details it imports from the .csv file
