SystemLink Predefined Properties

Last Modified: November 20, 2020

Predefined properties are user-facing key-value pairs that install with SystemLink and SystemLink APIs.

You can call these properties in code and display their current values in the details area for assets, systems, tags, and tests in the NI SystemLink Web Application.

You cannot delete predefined properties or modify how they act. If you create custom properties to interact with SystemLink data services, verify that you are not referencing an existing property to avoid name collisions.

Predefined Properties

Refer to the following table to learn more about the predefined properties you can view and interact with in NI SystemLink Web Application.

Property Full name or key Description API(s) Example value

A tag path uses dot separators to separate each component of the path. For example, a tag path looks like <system>.<namespace>.<tag>.
