About entities

An entity is formed by a group of fields that define the common functions of the network element. The entity encapsulates the properties of an asset type, based on which an asset type can be created.

For example, for a Windows platform, you can define an entity such as Machines, which contains fields that define the entity. Fields such as machine name, IP address, netmask, and CPU usage, and so on can define the Machine entity.
