    Component template with local properties - fill from batch job?

    Jan De Luyck



      I'm currently creating a component template to install some software on a set of our servers. Now, the template supports installation of separate components, and I'd like to create several batch jobs that install the separate components (or all, if wanted).

      When re-applying the component template to a server, it reinstalls all prior installed templates. If none are present, it should just install the "base set".


      The base set is what I want to be able to define from outside the component template: from a batch job (for example), set the base set local property to a certain value, and execute inside the component template the necessary jobs to get it done.


      Is there a way to do this? I was looking at blcli commands too, but I can't really seem to figure out how to properly use them for this particular case (I'm a noob at blcli).


      Kind regards
