Adding Metadata to a Project

Last Modified: November 6, 2020

Add metadata to your project to include supplemental information in your log files.


You can use metadata as placeholders when you configure your log file name and location. Refer to the Using Test Metadata as Placeholders for Log File Names and Locations topic for more information.

  1. Optional: In your Logging Specification, specify values for the Operator and DUT in the Test properties section. The fields for Operator and DUT are auto-populated, but can be changed or deleted. The logged-in user account name is the default value for Operator.
  2. To add additional arbitrary metadata, click Add property to add a new line to the project metadata table, then enter the Property name and Property value. Use the following guidelines when entering the metadata:
    • Property names must begin with a letter and cannot contain symbols. Duplicate property names will automatically be appended with sequential numbering.
    • Property values can begin with or contain any characters supported by your system encoding.
  3. Select Prompt on start for any metadata items that you wish to be reminded to update before the test begins.
You can view your metadata in the log files after they are created and appear on the Data tab. When viewing the log file in the FlexLogger TDMS Viewer, the metadata is located under Custom Properties in the properties pane.
