DT_TAGS and DT_CUSTOM_PROP

Hello,

Reading everywhere the DT_TAGS and DT_CUSTOM_PROP will add a tag or a property to ProcessGroups.


So assuming I have two processes in the PG, and I define one these DT_? values in the environment of a single process? I hope this means that this one process will show the tag or property and the other does not? And what happens with this tag or property in the PG, will it show?

I just tested this and the behavior is:

  • the property or tag will show up on the process group level and only the process group instances that the environment variables were set on
  • they will not be carried over to the other individual instances

The tag will show up like other tags at the top prefixed with [Environment] and the properties will show up in a special metadata section. The tag is just a tag, and then if a property you could make a tag rule from it or use it in naming rules etc...
