Work in progress
An archetype is a pre-recorded device.
Archetype can be used :
To create profiles for device with pre-recorded configuration components and usage. For example : a high performance server.
To pre-record real devices For example : dellr740
Using archetype in /model routes
You can retrieve the impacts of a specific archetype by specifying its name in the /model routes of devices.
/v1/server/model?archetype=dellR740 : will return the impact of the pre-recorded dellR740.
Using archetype in model object
You can specify an archetype in the model of a device when you send a device to the api. When doing so, missing data are retrieved from the archetype instead of default data.
All the missing data will be set with the corresponding data of the dellR740.
