    Adding Custom Labels

    You add custom labels to associate user-specified data to devices, device interfaces, and device inventory. You can specify the name and the value for each custom label that you add. For example, a custom label Location can have a value Building A. Junos Space Network Management Platform provides three predefined custom labels—Device Alias, Manufacturer ID, and Manufacturer Name. The custom labels are stored in the Junos Space Platform database. You can view, modify, and delete custom labels.

    Note: The Device Alias custom label can be added only to devices and not device interfaces or device inventory. Among the custom labels added to a device, only the Device Alias custom label can be viewed on the Device Management page. You can search, sort and filter devices on the Device Management page on the basis of the value of the Device Alias custom label.

    The maximum number of characters permitted for both the custom label name and the value is 255. You cannot include any special characters except the underscore (_), the hyphen (-), and the period (.) in the name of a custom label.
