An object is a representation of an identifiable element in your IT infrastructure whose properties, activities and generated events are monitored by Nexthink. An object can refer either to a hardware or to a software element.
There are ten types of objects in Nexthink. The availability of each type of object and the information that they carry depend on the platform of the end-user devices that originated them. Object types that are available for multiple platforms can be divided into specific to a platform and shared by platforms. Objects which are specific to a platform belong to one platform only. For instance, devices are platform specific because one device may be either a Windows device, a Mac OS device, or a Mobile device. On the other hand, users are platform shared, because the same user may have been seen in Windows, Mac OS, or Mobile.
