Set up assets and configure general settings

When you've set up the Cognite Data Fusion (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. 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 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:

Set up new asset
  1. In the top menu, select Manage and Configure > Configure InField.

  2. Navigate to Manage and Configure > Configure InField and select the Assets tab.

  3. Select Set up new asset and give the asset a unique name. This name is displayed in InField.

  4. Under Root node, select the root node from the CDF asset hierarchy. This asset will use all children of the selected node.

  5. Under Asset short name, enter a short code to be used in the unique URL of the asset. The URL uses this pattern:


  6. Select the US (MM.DD.YYYY) or the EU date format (DD.MM.YYYY).

  7. Optional: Select a Beta flag to display in the InField top bar while you are testing your configuration.

Configure general settings
