Set up assets and configure general settings
When you've set up the CDF project that will provide data for InField, you can configure how to visualize the data in the InField application.
First, set up one or more assets and define settings that apply to all of them. The assets are digital representations of, for instance, a plant, platform, or installation and point to asset nodes in the CDF asset hierarchy.
You can override some of the general settings for all assets with general settings for individual assets.
Set up an asset
Follow these steps for each asset you want to make available in InField:
In the top menu, select Manage and Configure > Configure InField.
Navigate to Manage and Configure > Configure InField and select the Assets tab.
Select Set up new asset and give the asset a unique name. This name is displayed in InField.
Under Root node, select the root node from the CDF asset hierarchy. This asset will use all children of the selected node.
Under Asset short name, enter a shortcode that is used in the unique URL for the asset. The URL uses this pattern:
Select the US (MM.DD.YYYY) or the EU date format (DD.MM.YYYY).
Optional: Select a Beta flag to display in the InField top bar while you are testing your configuration.
Configure general settings
Navigate to Manage and Configure > Configure InField and select the General tab.
