CMS_AddHardwareInventory(category, entry, value, valuetype)


category (String)

Category name

entry (String)

variable name

value (string)

value (string)

If you are inserting a Time (valuetype: "T") it must be set in epoch-time, meaning seconds since January 1. 1970. The scripting library has a function called GetEpochTime, which will convert a date to seconds since 1-1-1970.

If you want to use 'now' as the value, you can either insert;

  • an empty string ("")
  • or the value ("0")

valuetype (string)

The type of the value

Valid valuetypes are;

  • "S" for string
  • "I" for integer
  • "T" for time
