The platform of a device is linked to the way Nexthink extracts information from it, either using the Windows Collector, the Mac OS Collector or the Mobile Bridge. The platform relates thus to the underlying hardware or operating system family of the device. Nexthink supports three types of platforms:
- Windows platform
- Mac OS platform
- Mobile platform
Investigations may apply to one or more platforms. When multiple platforms are selected in an investigation, only the fields that are common to all of the selected platforms are available in the results of the investigation.
Besides devices, other objects may depend on the platform of the device that generated them.
