Overriding functional properties with developer toolkit-specific values

You can add the developer toolkit-specific IBM® Sterling Order Management Systemproperties in the om-functional.properties file rather than add them in the customer_overrides.properties file. If you add the properties in the om-functional.properties file, the properties are not exported along with your customization package. However, the om-functional.properties file is not a replacement for the customer_overrides.properties file.

A default om-functional.properties.sample file is shipped for you to configure the developer toolkit-specific properties in the om-functional.properties file.

devtoolkit_docker/compose/om-functional.properties.sample

Create a copy of the om-functional.properties.sample file and name it as om-functional.properties.

For example, the value for the functional yfs property, abcd needs to be pqr for cloud environments. You must set yfs.abcd=pqr in the custom_overrides.properties file.

But, because of the nature of the functional property, for the developer toolkit, the value must be xyz. So, you can additionally set yfs.abcd=xyz in the om_functional.properties file.

This configuration ensures that the xyz value is used for the developer toolkit even when pqr is exported as part of the customization package.

CAUTION:
You must review any property that is added in the om_functional.properties file because the same property might be present in the customer_overrides.properties file. The value that is set in the om_functional.properties is used for testing in the developer toolkit whereas the value that is set in the customer_overrides.properties is not tested in the developer toolkit, even though it gets exported to cloud environments.
