Asset View

The Asset View displays assets available in the current tenant.

The view mode can be configured to display the assets as listed items, in a responsive grid container, or as tree using the parentId property. A search field and an asset count field are displayed by default, but can be hidden.


The following pictures show the Asset View in different view modes.







Compact Tree

Compact Tree





Name Type Corresponding attribute Default Description Allowed Values
assetTypeFilter AssetTypeFilter Configures the asset types to be displayed, refer to AssetTypeFilter model.

Note that viewMode=Tree does not work in combination with assetTypeFilter.

context string context Configures the context of the component. See also here.
countHidden boolean count-hidden false Hides the asset count field if true.

customFilter any undefined [EXPERIMENTAL] Specifies a custom filter which influences the displayed assets
customListTemplateId string Specifies the element ID of a custom HTML template to be used for viewMode=List.
customTreeTemplateId empty Specifies the element ID of a custom HTML template to be used for viewMode=Tree.
errorNotification boolean error-notification Enables error control if an error is thrown. This can be used for debug purposes.

For productive use, the error event should be caught and handled in the application. See also here.
leafAssetHidden boolean leaf-asset-hidden false hides leaf assets in CompactTree Mode if true.
locale string locale Specifies the locale in which the component is displayed.
The locales en and de are provided by default.
See also here.
localeManager LocaleManager Returns a LocaleManager object.

This can be used to add locales or to get the locale settings. See also here.
model IDataModel Returns an object for data model handling, refer to IDataModel model.
multiSelectable `` multi-selectable false Enables selection of multiple assets at once if true.
searchHidden boolean search-hidden false Hides the search field if true.
searchText string search-text Specifies the text in the search field (read or write).
selectedAsset IAsset Specifies the selected asset, refer to IAsset model.
selectedAssetId string selected-asset-id Specifies the ID of the selected asset.
If multi-selectable is active this will override selectedAssetIds with its own value.
selectedAssetIds string Specifies the IDs of the selected assets.
This property is only considered if multi-selectable is true.
selectedAssets IAsset Specifies the selected assets, refer to IAsset model.
This property is only considered if multi-selectable is true.
sharedAssets boolean shared-assets false Specifies whether shared assets from other tenants are displayed.
showAssetImage boolean show-asset-image false Attribute to load asset-images if they exists.
showChildrenCount boolean show-children-count false Displays asset children count in CompactTree Mode if true.
showHierarchyPath boolean show-hierarchy-path false Displays the hierarchy path of the asset if true.
statusFilter AssetStatusFilter undefined [EXPERIMENTAL] Specifies a filter for the displayed assets according to different values of the AssetStatus enum
statusIndicator boolean status-indicator false Specifies whether status information about assets should be displayed.
subtenantFilter string subtenant-filter null Specifies whether only assets of a specific subtenant should be displayed.
Please use the subtenant ID and not an asset ID as the value.
view IViewModel Returns an object for view handling, refer to IViewModel model.
viewMode ViewMode view-mode List Configures the view mode. - List
- Card
- Tree
- CompactTree [EXPERIMENTAL]


Name Type Description
selectedAssetChanged EventEmitter<IAsset> Triggered when a new asset is selected and multi-selectable is false.
selectedAssetsChanged EventEmitter<IAsset[]> Triggered when a new asset is selected and multi-selectable is true.
assetsLoaded EventEmitter<IAsset[]> Triggered when assets loading is finished. Note: If custom filter is used, this response will be affected as well.
searchTextChanged EventEmitter<string> Triggered when the search text changes.
statusFilterChanged EventEmitter<AssetStatusFilter[]> Triggered when the status filter changes.
connected EventEmitter<any> Triggered after the component is created, initialized and appended to the DOM tree.
error EventEmitter<MdspUiError> Triggered when an error occurs in the component or while accessing APIs. See also here.

  • The Asset View currently supports up to 20,000 assets in list or tiles view mode.
  • The tree view mode currently supports up to 1,000 assets.
  • Virtually deleted assets are not displayed.


  • (Asset Management API is used)


Display Assets of a Specific Type

Use the assetypefilter parameter to only display assets of a specific type or of types derived from it.

// Set a filter for a specific asset type:
assetView.assetTypeFilter = ["core.mcnano"];
// This displays all assets of type 'core.mcnano'.
// Set a filter for multiple asset types:
assetView.assetTypeFilter = {
  supportedTypes: ["core.mcnano", "core.basicagent"]
// This displays all assets of type 'core.mcnano' or 'core.basicagent'.
// Set a filter to a specific asset type and all types derived from it:
assetView.assetTypeFilter = {
  supportedTypes: ["core.basicagent"],
  includeInheritance: true
// This displays all assets of type 'core.basicagent' and types derived from it.


The data model of the component can be refreshed, for example to update the view cyclically to get the latest asset changes:


Hide assets with a custom filter

In some use cases, you might want to hide specific assets. For this, the customFilter can be used.

document.querySelector('mdsp-asset-view').customFilter = function(a){
   return a.filter(b=>'M') ||'m'));

As a result, only the assets which include 'M' or 'm' in the asset name will be displayed. To reset the filter, set the customFilter to undefined.

Use Custom Templates

With templates you can influence the view of the component. Change the layout and the properties displayed inside a list item using Angular syntax for the data binding (e.g. {{}}). Refer to IAsset for available properties.

Add a HTML element to your index.html file and apply the custom template.

  <div id="customAssetViewTemplate" style="display: none;" class="mdsp mdsp-defaults">
    <em class="iconMdsp tag black"></em>
    <span class="h5">{{}}</span>
      <div class="{{data.location && ? 'badge badge--dark' : 'hidden'}}">{{data.location &&}}</div>
      <div class="{{'Pump') ? 'badge has-bgColor-success has-color-base000' : 'hidden'}}">Pump Asset</div>
const assetView = document.querySelector('mdsp-asset-view');
// set ID of the custom HTML element
assetView.customListTemplateId = 'customAssetViewTemplate';
