Set Property

You can set every property and custom properties using this action.

This dialog controls the set property options. With the “Set Property” action, some properties of the incoming message can be modified. This is especially useful if an administrator would like to e.g. rename two equally named devices.

Please note: when you change or create a property, the value will be changed as soon as the set property action is carried out. It will not change before that happens and the old value is no longer available thereafter. That means all actions and filter conditions will use the new value after it is set. So, if you would like e.g. rename a system, make sure the set property actions are at the top of the rule base!
