Editing Custom Attributes

About this task

You can only edit the name of a custom attribute, not its data type. To edit the value of a custom attribute, see Assigning Custom Attribute Values.

To edit a 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, double-click on the custom attribute that you want to edit to activate the field.
  4. Enter a new name for the attribute.
  5. Enable or disable Propagate to Device to store the attribute and value in the SOTI MobiControl agent on the device.
    This option is required if you want to use the Insert Custom Attribute option on a Lockdown screen. Do not enable for sensitive data.
  6. Click OK to rename your new custom attribute.
