Create Property Group dialog box

Ops Center Automator Service Builder User Guide

Part Number

You can create a new property group for a service template from the Create Property Group dialog box.

The following table describes the Create Property Group dialog box fields, subfields, and field groups. A field group is a collection of fields that are related to a specific action or configuration.

When you enter information in a dialog box, if the information is not valid, errors that include a description of the problem appear at the right side of the box.




ID* -

Specifies the ID for the new property group.

Display Name* -

Name of the new property group shown through the user interface.

Description: -

A optional description for the new property group.

Display/Hide: -

Specifies whether to display or hide the property group.

Custom File package: -

Specifies a custom file for the property group.

Summary Panel Rendering -

Define a JavaScript function for display contents of summary panel.

The following is a sample:

function summarize(properties, language, displayType) { 
  // PropertyInformation objects are stored in the properties.

  var summaryContentsMap = {};
  var restriction;
  for (var i = 0; i < properties.length; i++) {
    restriction = JSON.parse(properties[i].restriction);
    if (displayType == "exec") {
      if (restriction.permission != "hidden") {
        summaryContentsMap[properties[i].displayName] = properties[i].value;
    } else {
      summaryContentsMap[properties[i].displayName] = properties[i].value;
  return summaryContentsMap;
Validation Script: -

Generates a validation file for the property group.

Fields with an asterisk (*) are required.

Creating a validator script for verifying property group entries

If the provided validation options are not adequate for your purposes, you can create a script to perform the necessary verification. Following is an example of a validator script written in JavaScript that verifies whether a value entered by the user is a number and is less than the maximum allowable value of 2048:

function (properties, lang, displayType) {
	var message = [];
   	var hasError = false;

	if (displayType == "exec") {
		_.each(properties, function(property) {
			if (isNaN(property.value)) {
				message.push( "value must be a number:" + property.keyName + "=" + property.value);
				hasError = true;

			if (property.value >= 2048) {
				message.push ("value must be less than 2048:" + property.keyName + "=" + property.value);
				hasError = true;
	if (hasError) {
		return message;
	} else {

The following table shows the validator script specifications for the input property:

# Name Description

function (arg1, arg2, arg3) {
