Expose WebUI Properties in Database

Jump to solution

Is there a way to expose all the built-in WebUI properties?

We wanted to add a custom field after the "Hosted In" dropdown property in the Computer object. The name of that field is not listed in the Computer object section in FlexNet Manager Suite System Reference . I found a way around it by setting the property to be placed before the next section, but ideally the name of all the properties should be available in the doc if possible.

This appears to be a documentation oversight (not a fault of our documentation team but of the engineering team for not letting the documentation team know that an update was needed).

Some objects in the UI will not be usable for custom properties such as those that have the Search ability like the 'Category' control that is directly above 'Hosted In' on the Inventory Device Properties page.

For 'Hosted In' and others controls not in the documentation you can try to find the needed information using the web browser developer tools (typically they open when you hit F12) where you will find the name of the control in question is 'CloudServiceProviderID'.

You can try using this and test it out to see if it will work for you.
