About the Attributed Model

The AM allows you to interactively view data within it from within the Network Configuration Manager User Interface, using a facility called a Query. Queries are similar to reports displayed in a spreadsheet-like manner. The AM also allows you to construct Attributed Compliance Tests (ACT) against the results of Queries.

Note: The AM facilities do not replace the textual, configuration-based, model of Devices within Network Configuration Manager. Rather, the AM facilities are an extension to the existing facilities , allowing you to use the most appropriate tool for the task.
