Working with fields - interfaces array example

This example wants to show you how to make use of the Array data type when creating fields for custom variables. First, please got to the Dashboard and choose the Define data fields dashlet:

Dashboard - Define data fields

Then create a new data field and select Array as its data type:

Define data field - Array

Then create a new Host template (or use an existing one):

Define host template

Now add your formerly created data field to your template:

Add field to template

That’s it, now you are ready to create your first corresponding host. Once you add your formerly created template, a new form field for your custom variable will show up:

Create host with given field

Have a look at the config preview, it will show you how your Array-based custom variable will look like once deployed:
