Panel: Metadata


The Metadata panel provides the ability to show all or specific Asset Metadata key / value pairs in tabular form. Metadata fields and values are typically used to store static information about the asset such as serial numbers, specifics on location in a site, equipment tag numbers, last service dates, etc.

Example uses for metadata:

  • management information such as serial number, equipment tags, etc
  • OEM, vendor, manufacturer information such as model numbers
  • Important dates, times, and contact info such as installation or upgrade information.
  • Important links such as to part stores or internal documents
  • Any other reference or important information about the asset
  • Calibration data, operating points, etc.
