Additional Properties

In this section, you can extend contacts with additional parameters that are not in the form and it is useful to record them in contacts for your business. Additional properties can be used to subdivide contacts.

Additional properties were developed for the CMDB module and contacts just reproduce them. Therefore, addition and further configuration of additional properties are done under the CMDB module.

Assign an Additional Property

To add an additional property, click the +Assign a Property
button. Click to open a new window with the list of additional properties that you can define in the CMDB module. For each property, there is a check box to select the requested property. Use the Assign Selected button to add selected properties. These items are then included in the request form.

If the list does not contain the property you require, there is also a possibility to define it directly in the property selection window using the +Quickly add a property and +Composite property buttons. Select +Quickly add a property to create a basic property. Use the +Composite property button to add a composite property that contains more than one basic property. For more information on working with additional properties, see the text CMDB Configuration database->Additional Properties.
