Creating a new target type

You need to create a custom target type to be able to collect data and run an evaluation for the custom asset type. You can create a new target type only for the custom asset type that is based on a custom platform. You cannot create a target type in case you create a probable asset type or extend an existing asset type.

    The custom platform and the custom asset types are available for selection in the drop-down list.

  6. In the Filter Statement dialog box, select an operator and in the Specify Value box, type a value. Click OK.
