Creating, setting, and editing properties
Properties can be created for most elements, including components, resources, applications, and agents. You can set and change properties in many different ways.
Setting properties manually
You can create and edit properties on many elements by opening the element and going to its Configuration tab.
However, if you created an application from a template, any environment or application properties that you specified are not available on the Configuration tabs. You can view and edit, but not delete, these properties by clicking the element's Configuration tab (not the Configuration tab at the top of the page), and then clicking Basic Settings.
Escape backslash, equals, and colon characters (
Property1=Value1 Property2=Value2 Property3=Value3
:) with a backslash, for example:
To create a property, put the new property and its value on a new line. To include a line break in a property value, use "
WindowsPath=C\:\\myfolder\\myfile.txt PropertyWithColons=This string\: has a colon
\n". Be sure to click Save to save your changes when you are finished editing multiple properties. To close batch edit mode, use the Use Table command. Secured values are encrypted when they are displayed in batch mode. If you modify an encrypted value, the modifications are encrypted when you exit edit mode.
Starting in IBM UrbanCode Deploy version 7.0.5, auto-completing properties were added to the script editor fields. The auto-complete functionality works in application, component, and generic processes.
Setting properties with the Configuration tab
On the top-level Configuration page you can directly manage properties for applications, components, and environments.
Setting properties in processes
Several different steps are available to create and set properties in processes.
