Parent Topic: Device Type Definitions

A property field definition defines how users interact with a property field in the InsightCM web application user interface. The term property field refers to a text box or pull-down menu of options. You can define property fields in-line, within a device or channel type definition. Or, you can define a property field in a separate JSON file and call the file from the owning definition. This is useful for reusing the same property field in multiple locations.

Note  This definition is one part within the device type definition structure. In other words, when you export and import a device type definition, this definition is included.

To display a property field in the InsightCM web application, a device type or channel type definition must call the property in a layout group.

Property field definitions in JSON contain the following name-value pairs:
