Repositories are used by applications to process and store information. For example the Patch success application uses both an inventory and a BI repository to process the information needed to report on how successful patching is in your enterprise.
Providers can be used by applications to leverage external tools to perform specific operations. For example the reclaim provider enables software to be uninstalled, thereby extending the functionality of the platform to include uninstallation.
Custom properties are generally associated with Explorer and can be used when setting coverage tags to target Instructions to particular devices. The custom properties must be defined by a custom properties administrator before they can be used to tag devices or used to set the coverage of Instructions.
This is done from the Settings→Configuration→Custom properties page, which can be viewed by users with any of the following roles:
- Global Administrators
- Custom Properties Administrators
The following headings show the steps to add, edit and delete properties and set property values. For a quick tutorial on adding properties see Adding properties - tutorial.
The Agent installer page is part of a feature that is currently under development and for use with the new Tachyon Discovery product, which is due for release in the coming months.
