Object Category APIs
This represents the actual items that are defined and created based on different use cases. Unlike an Asset, which is a core entity of the system, a category is just a “label” tagged to an Asset and defines and configure a specific set of properties and behaviours. These properties are a subset of those supported by the asset. Hence, categories are completely driven by configuration, without any category-specific logic implemented in the code.
