Adding a Description to the Server Configuration's Device Details

Last Update: 11/7/2018

The KEPServerEX version 5.6 release included an update to the Configuration Utility that will display device details when a channel is selected. This functionality was added as a part of the Device Discovery feature. Drivers that support Device Discovery can create devices on a channel using the discovered device's properties, including a device description (if available).

At this time, there is no wizard page or device property for adding a description when manually creating a device. To add a description after a device has been created, first open the Detail View. Then, click in the Description column and enter the desired information. Once complete, the description will be available both in the device's Detail View and as the device's _Description System Tag.
