Adding Component Template Properties
Component template properties ensure that every component created from a template has the same properties. The three types of available properties are described in the following table.
To add component template properties:
- Navigate to Management > Components > Component Templates.
- Select a template and select the Properties tab.
- Select one of these component template property tabs and click Add Property:
These user-defined properties can be used in scripts and plugins. Properties inherited from templates cannot be modified on the component level. If you change the value, the change will be reflected in components created from the template, including those previously created.
Component Property Definitions
Every component will have this property; it will appear on the Create Component dialog box for every component created from this template. A value defined here can be changed by created components. Each property must have a type.
Environment Property Definitions
Every environment that uses a component created by this template will have this property. The property will appear on the environment's Component Mappings at Applications > [select application] > Environments > [select environment] > View Details > Component Mapping. A value defined here can be changed by environment. Each property must have a type.
Version Property Definitions
