Adding Resource Properties

Add properties to a resource for information that may have values specific to that resource. If a resource is shared by multiple components, and if all or most of the components should use the same value for a resource property setting, you should set the value at the resource level. For more information, see How Properties Are Resolved.

To create resource properties:

  1. Navigate to Management > Resources > [select resource].

  2. Select the Properties tab.

  3. To set a single property, click Add Property.

    1. Fill in the fields as shown in the following table.

      Field Description
      Name Property name
      Description Property description
      Secure Select this if the property should be secure.

      Secure properties are stored encrypted and displayed obscured in the Deployment Automation user interface.

      Value Value for the property that will be used by steps in a process
  4. To set multiple properties, click Batch Edit.

    1. In the Properties box, enter multiple properties and their values on separate lines as property=value.

      For example, if you had properties host and port, you would enter them as follows:

      host=myServer

      port=8080

      Note:

      The following restrictions apply to batch edit:

      • The Secure option cannot be set.
      • The value cannot contain the "=" symbol.
  5. Click Save.

To use a property in a process, reference it when you configure a step that uses it. Use the following syntax: ${p:resource/<property name>}
