Introducing Tachyon Explorer
Implementing Tachyon Explorer
Using Tachyon Explorer
To illustrate the configuration of coverage tags we use an example where the property relates to the business function of a device. We'll create a single Department property with a number of values that enables us to differentiate between the departments we want Tachyon to support.
Adding a property and values
The first step to creating a property with values is to create the property name. Generally to do this you click on the Add+ button at the top of the NAME column, but in the case of the first time you navigate to the page Tachyon will start to help you add a new property name immediately. A new edit field appears in the NAME column ready for you to type the name of the new property.
The animation opposite illustrates the following steps:
- Click on the Add button to display the Add Custom Property popup.
- Set the Name to Department. Property names may consist of alphanumeric characters and also the underscore character '_' but not spaces or periods. The names are limited to 16 characters in length.
- Set the Property type to CoverageTag.
- Enter the first value in the Values section. Type Finance in the edit field.
- Click the + button to the right of the Values section, and type IT Support into the edit field.
- Do this once more to add the Sales value.
- When the values have been set click Add to add the custom property to Tachyon.
