I'm currently working with inputs.conf and would like to have the stanzas recognize the values that are assigned to the keys in the configuration page (setup.xml).
An example would be
[monitor://WAS_installation_path\profiles\WAS_profile_name\config\cells\WAS_cell_name\*.xml] sourcetype = WebSphere:CellConfigurationXML disabled = 0
Please bear in mind that I'm not using the operating system's environment variables but app-specific variables that are defined in the setup.xml
Is there a mechanism to achieve such task?
Hmm. I've always accomplished this with OS variables, which your saying will not work for you. I do wish there were a better way to do this... very good question!
I don't understand. Can you clarify? In you example, do you mean that
WebSphere:CellConfigurationXML would be replaced with a value that was specified by a user via the
The goal here is to have the setup.xml control the sourcetype assigned in inputs.conf. I'm not sure exactly why though. Manager can modify the sourcetype for an input, so it seems to me you'd want to have the setup.xml somehow make use of the same endpoints, if possible.
I'm guessing that
WAS_cell_name are variables that Nicholas is trying to have replaced. Nicholas, care to jump in here?
Given that Lowell's understanding of the question is accurate, there's no specific support for doing this.
