Popovers are UI elements displayed when you hover over a monitored object on a SolarWinds Platform Web Console view. They provide additional information and quick access to commands without taking up space or cluttering the page with too much information.

You can include up to five custom properties in your popovers for nodes.

To include custom properties in node popovers, select Object Details Views as the custom property usage.

You can do this when creating a custom property or edit an existing custom property.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > Manage Custom Properties.

  2. Click Add or select an existing custom property and click Edit.

  3. Scroll down and make sure the Object Details Views box is selected.

    If you selected usage options when creating the custom property, you cannot edit these options any more. This prevents you from deleting custom properties used for example in reports.
