About data input masks

Data input masks are the filters that selectively include or exclude certain values. When you define a data class, you can assign the masks that indicate what sort of value the data class attributes should hold. Values that do not conform to the mask cannot be entered.

See About CMDB data classes.

See Creating a custom data class.
