Create an asset

All new assets are based on a type.

  • For connecting MindConnect Elements you can use the core types.
  • To configure your custom asset, you have to create your own type with the required aspects and variables. Subsequently you can derive your customized asset based on type.
  • The classification information is only shown if an asset is derived from BasicDevice. The classification of an asset cannot be changed afterwards.
  • The time zone cannot be changed after the creation of the asset.

You can find more information about types in chapter Using types.
