You need to use blcli calls in your script to query for the value of the property or property instance.
But what ist the correct Command?
Can you give an example.
blcli .... ???
it depends on what you want to do. look in the propertyclass or propertyinstance name spaces.
I need more help
1. I have a class "project_x" in this class, i have any subclasses "type_a" as example. In this Class exist any Instances. I have a "property_1" with value "test"
2. A Server has a Server Property "project_x" with a value like a Instance from any Subclass.
3. I need the value from "this_Server"."project_x"."type_a"."property_1"
What is the correct Syntax/Statement for this? Have you an Example.
My Test was this:
blcli PropertyClass getDefaultValue Class://SystemObject/project_x property_1
This show the DefaultValue, but not the Value from the Server.class.subclass.instanz.value
In your example, all you need is this:
blcli_execute Server printPropertyValue
I tested your scenario in my VM:
testrhel4# blcli_execute Server printPropertyValue localhost project_x
Thank you. It works.
I use this:
blcli Server printPropertyValue $SERVER "Projekt.property"
Does this still work the same in 8.0? We just upgraded from 7.6 to 8.0 SP5, and now a script that queries a Server property isn't working. The property that is queried is an instance of a custom propery class. The script queries a value within the class. This worked up until the upgrade.
Here is the code snippet:
blcli_execute Server printPropertyValue server1 "APPS1.ENVIRONMENT"
When I run the command in a BLCLI subshell, this is the error I get:
BLCLI> Server printPropertyByName server1 APPS1.ENVIRONMENT
Command execution failed. com.bladelogic.mfw.util.BlException: Ambiguous or unknown property reference for Server in printPropertyByName: APPS1.ENVIRONMENT
Like I said, this was working in 7.6. In fact it has been working for the last couple of years. Did something change with 8.0 in regards to this command?
Do you still have this problem?
You say, your script queries a "Server property" and then is "an instance of a custom property class". What is true? Maybe the custom property class is referenced in another Server-property, but that's a different thing.
What you will probably need is:
blcli_execute PropertyInstance getFullyResolvedPropertyValue "Class://SystemObject/Some/Other/ClassPath/APPS1" "ENVIRONMENT"
- but that's just a guess as I don't know what exactly you mean with "APP1.ENVIRONMENT".
If your problem is already solved it would be great if you tell about the solution.
I have a custom Server property called APPS1. This property is defined as Type = Property class. The value of the property APPS1 when set is an instance of a custom property class we created.
Since this initial post, I have made a new discovery. The problem seems to be that during the 8.0 upgrade from 7.6, the way properties store property class values changed. They used to be stored as a class path (i.e. Class://...). Now, however, they are stored as a DBKey. So, when I try to retrieve a value of a property within the custom property class by referencing it through the custom Server property (i.e. APPS1.ENVIRONMENT), "PropertyInstance getFullyResolvedPropertyValue" fails because the Server property does not contain a class path to the custom property class instance.
In any case, BMC has told me that there will be a fix for this in 8.0 SP8. So, I have to just wait and see.
