Intro to Custom Types
Custom Types are found on the Endpoint Dashboard and the Component Dashboard and are used to map a Component to its appropriate Endpoint. For example, a default Endpoint Type is “Application Server.” This maps to a Component defined as an “Application Server.” This mapping allows Endpoints in an Environment to be dynamically assigned Components based the Endpoint Type.
Components map to a single Endpoint, but an Endpoint can map to multiple types of Components. For example, your Endpoint could serve as both your Application Server and Database Server.
You can create your own Endpoint Types for defining this mapping.
