Configuration properties, also called zProperties, define various settings for a device. They are inherited from a device's Device Class hierarchy, and are essentially a bunch of configuration settings, each with a name and a value. In addition to being inherited from a Device Class, they can also be set on a per-device basis. They are commonly used to store authentication settings for modeling (discovery) and monitoring.
