View component template properties

A component may have defined properties and inherited properties.

  • Defined Properties — Properties created directly on this component template. You can delete, edit, and update defined properties and their values. New component templates have no defined properties, unless the component type is locked. If the component type is locked, only the property value can be set in the template's properties.
  • Inherited Properties — Indicated by the Inherited label. Properties inherited from the base component type hierarchy. Identified in this list by the Inherited label. You can edit only the values of inherited properties.

A property may also have references, which are properties that have been mapped from a resource offering, lifecycle action, or user operation. The value of the mapped property on the referring component gets its value from this property. See Property mapping. To view references to a component template property, click View References in the properties column. See View Component Template Property References.
