Custom Properties Payload

Create a list of custom properties and assign it to specific Android devices or a device group. These properties can be used to build selection criteria for software profiles or as device filters. Like the predefined properties, custom properties appear as selection variables in the Selection Criteria Builder.

In addition to creating properties with this payload, you can create and edit custom properties on a device-by-device basis from the Device Details screen or you can create a .prf file for device-side properties. For more information, see Configuring Device Properties.

A custom properties payload has the following fields:

Payload Name

The name of the payload.

Group (optional)

The device group name, if applicable.


The property name.


The value for the property. This should be a standardized value so that you can easily build selection criteria for assigning software profiles and device filters.


The action you want to associate with this custom property.

Create property. Avalanche creates this custom property on the device. If the property already exists on the device, no further action is taken.

Delete property. Avalanche searches all assigned devices for this custom property and removes the property.

Do not use special characters or spaces in custom property names or values.

When you add a custom property, you must assign the property a name and value. You aren't required to follow any a standard naming practice, but we recommend starting a list of custom properties with the vendor name to assist with organizing user-defined properties alongside device properties. The first name would be your company name, and then following entries can contain your other custom properties. For example:

vendor = WavelinkCorp
UniqueValue1 = 1
UniqueValue2 = 2
UniqueValue3 = 3
