Patching Job - Properties

The Properties panel provides a list of properties automatically assigned to a Snapshot Job. In this list, you can modify the value of any properties that are defined as editable.

For any property that has a check in the Editable column, select the property and click in the Value column.

  • To set a property value back to its default value, click Reset to Default Value .
    The value of the property is reset to the value it inherits from a built-in property class. The Value Source column shows the property class from which the value is inherited.
  • Depending on the type of property you are editing, you can take different actions to set a new value, such as entering an alphanumeric string, choosing from an enumerated list, or selecting a date.
    To insert a parameter into the value, enter the value, bracketed with double question mark delimiters (for example, ??MYPARAMETER??) or click Select Property .

The following table provides a list of editable properties:

Property nameProperty typeDescription
AUTO_GENERATEDBooleanSpecifies whether the object was auto generated.

If this property is set to TRUE, the logs that are created while performing a patch analysis job on the targets are saved on the Application Server.
