Creating hardware inventory filters
It is possible to create new inventory filters for the hardware inventory. These filters will then replace the configuration filters in the form of an .xml file on the devices to which the newly created filters will be assigned. This file is based on the default .xml hardware template. To create a new hardware inventory filter, proceed as follows:
- With the Hardware Inventory node selected in the left window pane select Edit > Create Filter .
The Properties pop-up menu appears.
- Enter the name for the new hardware inventory filter into the provided field.
- Click OK to confirm the new object and close the window.
