Adding Resource Role Properties

Add properties to a resource role for information that may have values specific to that resource role.

To define an application process property:

  1. Navigate to Management > Resources.
  2. In the selection box, select Roles.
  3. In the resource roles list, select the resource role for which you want to define a property.
  4. Select the Properties tab.
  5. Click the Add Property button.
  6. Fill in the fields as shown in the following table.
    Field Description
    Name Property name
    Description Property description
    Label Enter a label to be associated with the property in the user interface.
    Required Select this if the property is required.
    Specify the type of expected value. The supported types are as follows:
    • text
    • text area
    • check box
    • select
    • multi select
    • secure
    The default type is text.
    Default Value Enter a default value (if any).
  7. Click Save.
You can now use the resource role property in a process. Use the following syntax: ${p:resource/<resource role>/<property name>}

For example, if you create a WS resource role and define a property for it named serverURL, you can access the property value from a process step as follows: ${p:resource/WS/serverURL}
