A tracker often has to be associated with an external system ID in a way that is neither part of the reported state of the device or the desired state – attaching a tracker to a particular engine part or palette; assigning a human-readable name; synchronizing with an external asset management system.

These are known as device aliases.

For example, a device attached to a crate could have an alias type of 'crateID' and an alias value of '123';
