Target list details

The list of targets, which is displayed automatically once you enter the Targets UI feature from the left navigation, displays by default the following information about each target:

  • Update status - an icon column, showing the status of the target for its latest assigned action

  • Name - the name of the target specified during its provisioning

  • Description - the description provided for the target during provisioning, if any

Use the respective icons in the top right corner to expand images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2782153982/maximize-version-1-modificationdate-1680858512000-api-v2.png and minimize images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2782153982/minimize-version-1-modificationdate-1680858539000-api-v2.png the current view.

You can remove a column that is not relevant for your use case, as well as add additional Text columns and Icon columns to the list via the configure columns images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2782153982/settings-version-1-modificationdate-1680858691000-api-v2.png icon in the header.

You can always revert to the default columns view via the reset images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2782153982/reset-version-1-modificationdate-1680859199000-api-v2.png icon.


Individual target details

Once you select a target from the list, further detailed information about it is displayed. In particular:

  • Controller id - the ID of the target automatically assigned by the system during the target provisioning

  • Name - the name of the target specified during its provisioning

  • Description - the description which may have been added during the target provisioning

  • Target type (if any) - the name of an assigned custom type, which can be created only via the Rollouts Classic UI

  • Address - the address where you can reach the target, for example via the AMQP protocol when using the DMF API, or via the HTTP protocol when using the DDI API

  • Assigned distribution set - a link to the Distribution sets UI feature where you can see details of the assigned distribution set and its assigned software modules

  • Action history - a link to the Actions UI feature, where the list of actions is automatically filtered for the specific target (by Target ID)

  • Installed distribution set (if any) - the name of the last installed distribution set

  • Security token - you can view and then copy the security token by clicking the images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2782153982/watch-on-version-1-modificationdate-1681974167000-api-v2.png Show icon for device authentication, e.g. useful in test scenarios

    To enable device authentication via security token, see Authentication configuration as described at System configuration.

  • Poll status - can be either in-time or overdue; for polling configuration refer to System configuration

  • Last poll - date and time of the last poll made by the target

  • Created at - date and time of the device provisioning

  • Created by - identification of the creator who provisioned the target

  • Last modified at - date and time of the last update of the target

  • Last modified by - identification of the user who initiated the last update of the target



The list of controller attributes (key-value pairs) is displayed in a separate Attributes section of the Target view, below its details.

Controller attributes, as opposed to metadata, are owned by the target and therefore can only be modified by the target.

A controller attribute can for example be the hardware version of the target.

You can request the target to update /resend its controller attributes via the images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2782153982/settings-arrows-version-1-modificationdate-1680862397000-api-v2.png Update pending icon.


At the bottom of the Target details view, you will see the Metadata section.

Metadata are key-value pairs that can help to annotate the target with additional information. The metadata information can be later used when defining target filters.

This section includes a list of all available target metadata, displayed as a key-value pair. Each entry has a delete and edit action icon on the right.


Learn about the available metadata management actions in Manage target metadata.


Any tags assigned to the selected target will be displayed in the Tags section (right after the Metadata section).

How to assign tags to a target is explained in Manage tags.
