Creating Custom Attributes

About this task

To develop a new custom attribute:


  1. On the All Platforms tab, go to the Servers tab.
  2. Under Global Settings, click the wrench icon beside Manage Custom Attributes.
  3. In the Manage Custom Attributes dialog box, click Add.
  4. Enter a name for the new attribute, then set its data type.
    Note: Once a custom attribute is saved, its data type cannot be changed.
    See Using Custom Attributes for more information.
  5. If you want to store the attribute and its value in the device's SOTI MobiControl agent, enable Propagate to Device.
    This option is required if you want to use the Insert Custom Attribute option on a Lockdown screen. Do not enable it for sensitive data.
  6. Click OK to save your new custom attribute.


You can now assign a value to the custom attribute. You can assign values for any custom attributes in the system. Custom attributes are not device type specific.
