Types and Custom Types

What are types?

Every object in SquaredUp has a type. Types are usually indexed when you add a data source as they often bring new types of objects (like domain controllers, tickets, projects, alerts, incidents, etc.). You can also add custom types if you've indexed data from a custom data source to give those new objects nice looking types with an icon and the singular and plural forms of the type.

How to add a custom type

  1. In SquaredUp browse to Settings > Types

  2. Click on Add new type.

  3. Add your custom type by entering the following settings:

    NameThis name is just for you to be able to identify the type, it's not used anywhere in else SquaredUp. You can choose a name that helps you remember what this type refers to and why you created it.
    TypeEnter the value of the type property of your objects.
    IconStart typing to find suggestions for font awesome icons or use the link below the field to see a list of all icon names.
    Singular Object NameThe singular form of the object type's name. This name will be displayed in SquaredUp.
    Collection NameThe plural form of the object type's name. This name will be displayed in SquaredUp.
