Common Tabs
The Properties dialog for every object, link, and Policy includes two tabs that work the same way on every item.
General tab
This tab enables you to rename an object, link, or Policy, and add a description to it.
Name field – Type a descriptive name for the item.
Description field – Type a detailed description of the item. This description is helpful for documenting the expected behavior of Policies and objects.
The General tab of the Manage Text File object and the Write Web Page object provide other functionality in addition to the Name and Description fields. For a description of that functionality, see the topics for those objects.
Run Behavior tab
This tab enables you to configure how the object will be run. This includes how it will behave with the Databus and how events will be sent.
Note: The Publised Data Behavior section is only available in Pipeline mode.
Published Data Behavior
When some objects executes they product multi-valued published data. Sometimes you may want to prevent this from occuring and parse the data manually as a CSV, multi-lined, or delimeter separated list of data. By turning on the Flatten behavior, the object that would normally produce a multi-valued data would produce single valued data with the specified separators.
Note: The object will produce a new set of data every time it runs. The Flatten feature does not flatten data across multiple executions of the same object.
Event Notifications
The amount of time that must pass before an Opalis Event is generated for a Policy or an object. You can generate an Opalis Event if the Policy or object takes longer than a certain time to run, or does not run at all.
To generate an Opalis Event if the Policy or object does not finish running within a certain amount of time, type the number of seconds to count in the seconds field.
To generate an Opalis Event if the Policy or object does not run at all, check the Report if the object fails to run check box.
For more information on Opalis Events, see “Configuring event notifications” in the Administrator Guide.
Security Credentials Tab
Some objects include the Security Credentials tab. The Security Credentials tab enables you to specify whether you will run the object under the account that runs the Action Server service, or under a different account. This is useful when the object performs its actions on a remote computer.
Use the security of the account assigned to the service
Select this option to run this object with the account used by the Action Server.
This account
Select this option to specify the account that will be used to run this object. Verify that the account has the rights to perform this action.
User name – type the account name that will be used to run this object
Password – type the password that is associated with the account that you specified
Note: If you specify an invalid account name or password, the account assigned to the Action Server will be used to run the object.
