A fabric administrator defines property sets in an XML file and uploads them to vRealize Automation.

About this task

If you edit a property set that is already in use in a build profile, vRealize Automation does not automatically update the build profile. A fabric administrator must reload the property set to the build profile.

Procedure

  1. Create an XML file.
  2. Insert the following version and encoding values into the schema declaration. version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16".
  3. Insert a <Doc> element.
    <Doc>
    </Doc>
  4. Insert a <CustomProperties> element in the <Doc> element.
    <Doc>
      <CustomProperties>
      </CustomProperties>
    </Doc>
  5. Define the attributes of the custom property to include in the property set.
    <Doc>
      <CustomProperties>
        <Property Name=”property_name" DefaultValue=”property_value" Encrypted=”true_or_false" PromptUser="true_or_false"/>
      </CustomProperties>
    </Doc>

    If you do not include the DefaultValue attribute, no default value is stored. If you do not include the Encrypted or PromptUser attributes, they default to false.

  6. Repeat 5 step for each property to include in the property set.
  7. Save and close the file.

Results

A fabric administrator can now upload your property set XML file to vRealize Automation.
