A system profile contains the consolidated information about an OT system (such as a production line or distributed control system). All you have to do to have OT-BASE consolidate this data into a profile is to associate the respective OT devices with a system that you have defined in INVENTORY/SYSTEMS.
In order to open a system profile, you can double-click on a system entry in the systems list, or click on a system mention anywhere in other profiles, such as device or location profiles.
A system profile has the following sections:
The picture, name, and description of the system.
The general section with the system ID, system group, and process location.
Any custom fields that users have created, along with their values for this system.
If the system's configuration was approved by an authorized approver at least once, this section will contain information about any changes between approved releases, or between the last approved release and the current configuration.
Any user-defined tags that have been associated with the system.
Network topology for the system.
The Connectivity section lists the networks that components of the system are associated with, a port list for the network gear that is associated with the system's components, and a list of assigned data flow from and to the system (if existing). All this information is assembled automatically by OT-BASE and does not need to / cannot be edited manually. Note that any network devices listed in this section doesn't necessarily need to be associated with the system. For example, trunk switches usually serve multiple systems and therefore aren't associated with any single system. However they automatically show up in the list to give you the full picture. -- Note that the port list can be expanded for any single network device by clicking the "+" sign on the left margin. You will then see details about the switch port assignments. If you want to expand the full port listing for all network devices, click on "Expand All".
The Endpoints section lists all endpoint devices associated with this system, grouped by category (automation devices, computers, and other). Just like with the port list, you can expand any device by clicking on the "+" sign to see connectivity information.
Lists any devices that are associated with the system but are not networked.
Bill of Materials
A bill of materials for the OT components (hardware products) that make up the system.
The Software section gives you an overview of the major software products used in this system. The listing is retricted to operating systems and application software.
The Users section lists all users that are responsible for any device that belongs to the system.
Any open change cases that covers one or more devices that belong to the system is listed in the Change Cases section. Known problems for one or more devices that belong to the system are listed below.
The section Non-compliant devices lists devices that belong to the system which are non-compliant with baselines that have been associated with them.
Finally, files attached to the system can be opened in the Files section.
