The section identify is used to specify how identify properties of a device can be retrieved. It only has a single parameter properties that have the following structure:

Property Description
vendor Vendor
model Model description
model_series Model series
serial_number Serial number
os_version OS software version

All these properties, aswell as the whole identify section, is optional.

The value for these properties inside of the YAML files is an array of property readers. It is possible to define multiple property readers that read out the same value. Thola will try to use all of them until one succeeds, starting with the first one in the array.

The following example shows the identify section inside the AudioCodes device class:

      - detection: constant
        value: "AudioCodes"
      - detection: snmpget
        oid: "."

In this case we have two properties: vendor and serial_number.
