referenced entity fields
A referenced entity is a
parent entity. You can choose to include the fields of the
referenced entity along with the fields of the primary entity in
the custom schema.
Consider the following example:
You select Windows File as the primary entity to
create a new asset type.
You choose to include the referenced entity fields
also in the new asset type. The parent or referenced entities for
the Windows File are Domain, Machine, and Group.
You create a new asset type. When you run a job
that is based on the new asset type, the job also collects the
information about the referenced fields.
If the data for the Windows File asset type
contains information about the Domain, the import job also returns
the data for the domain.
