External Resource Types

External Resource Types (ERTs) are properties set on devices, instances, and services (collectively referred to as resources on the LogicMonitor platform) that allow resources to be recognized for inclusion in topology maps.

The following table provides you with the list of ERTs used for creating Topology maps:
