Scripted value matching for MID Servers

A module called Capability Value Tests enables administrators to create capabilities that find devices using values that do not require exact string matching. Action on these values is controlled by a user-defined script.

The Resolve DNS capability is provided in the base system and is configured to resolve DNS names into IP addresses for devices whose names end with a specified domain name. The capability Value entered is automatically prefaced with a dot during processing to match domain syntax. This value can contain one or more sub-domains, but must include the end of the domain string. Matching devices must end with the identical syntax. The script for the Resolve DNS capability determines if a device name matches the criteria defined by Value . If a match exists, the platform performs the address resolution automatically. For example, if the value for the Resolve DNS capability is, the MID Server with this capability finds and If the value is changed to, then the MID Server finds only lnxlab01.

Note: If Value in the Resolve DNS capability is blank, then all domains match.

To view the script for evaluating this capability, navigate to MID Server > Capability Value Tests and select Resolve DNS from the list.
