Hi,

Can someone help with the steps to remove specific custom computer properties and its columns from the FNMS webUi and a way to list all custom properties created?

Hello @Devarajan,

The section 'Removing a Custom Property' in the attached documentation should be of some use to you (assuming version 2019 R2). The required procedure differs depending upon what you are trying to delete, in increasing order of specificity:

1) Removing a tab
2) Removing a section
3) Removing a specific property

I don't believe that there's any way to view all created custom properties in the Web UI, as custom properties can be created for various types of objects in FNMS.

Again, assuming that you are On-Premises, running SELECTs against the following tables in the Compliance DB will give you an overall picture of the custom properties defined in your environment:

AssetTypeProperty (for Asset objects)
ComplianceComputerTypeProperty (for Inventory Device objects)
ComplianceUserTypeProperty (for User objects)
ContractProperty (for Contract objects)
InstanceTypeProperty (for Instance objects)
PurchaseOrderProperty (for Purchase Order objects)
VendorProperty (for Vendor objects)
SoftwareLicenseTypeProperty (for License objects)
SoftwareTitleProperty (for Application objects)

HTH,
Joseph
