Explore Custom Fields

Is there anyway to explore my instances in Inventory Manager by custom field?  I can only find the fields when viewing a specific instance's details.  This makes these fields impossible to use in a large environment without a custom solution (ie. SSRS).  Has anyone found a good use for custom fields?

  • Would you prefer to be able to filter by these fields in the Explorer and Instances view or are you wanting something more like Search functionality, or both?
  • Filtering by the custom fields in the Explorer and Instances view would be very useful, that is exactly what we are after. We have a large SQL footprint and we sometimes need to answer questions about the environment. Right now we are heavily using tags to support several different categories.
