ContextHub - Asset specific types

What are Asset Specific Types? 

To simplify the creation of context items, you can assign certain types to a specific set of assets. This results in a filtered list of types when creating new context items for an asset.  

How to assign Asset Specific Types  

Asset specific types can be applied to an individual or sets of assets. Once configured, your types are filtered when creating new context items for an asset.  By default all types are allowed but you can set a custom configuration. Your configured types will be applied to your selected asset(s) and all underlying assets.   

  1. Enter ContextHub 
  2. Click on Config 
  3. Select "Asset specific types". Your asset tree will appear. Here you can search for or filter assets of interest to you.

4. Select an asset 

When you select a certain asset – an asset panel from the right of the screen will appear. You have two ways of configuring types assigned to your assetOptions include: 

  • Default configuration (all types) 
  • Custom configuration

In the example above we have three assets selected. As it stands, all asset types can be assigned to these assets. But now we want to get specific. 

  1. Click on the Custom configuration option. 
  2. Search and select the asset types you want to assign.

      3. Once selected (3 have been selected on this occasion), click outside the selection box.

Now the three assets have three types assigned that can be used for context creation.  

How can we use these new specific Types? 

Now that you have preassigned types to your assets, when you create a new context item for these assets, you will have only the three types assigned as options for your assets:
