Techniques are described herein that provide an innovation in which each device type within a system may receive its own metadata in order to draw (e.g., display) and populate user interface (UI) elements. Different device types and their corresponding UI elements (e.g., tabs, tables, columns, etc.) are visible from one devices' list page. This enables the system to scale in multiple device categories (e.g., routers, gateways, endpoints, etc.). The system can be extended to include other device categories that a current product may not be managing.
