A.4. Profile Attributes


In addition to the resources described in the other sections, a profile also has certain attributes that affect its behavior. You cannot edit profile attributes directly using the text editor.
For completeness, this section describes what the profile attributes are and what console commands you can use to modify them.

parents attribute

The parents attribute is a list of one or more parent profiles. This attribute can be set using the profile-change-parents console command. For example, to assign the parent profiles camel and cxf to the my-camel-cxf-profile profile, you would enter the following console command:
JBossFuse:karaf@root> profile-change-parents --version 1.0 my-camel-cxf-profile camel cxf

abstract attribute

When a profile's abstract attribute is set to true, the profile cannot be directly deployed to a container. This is useful for profiles that are only intended to be the parents of other profiles—for example, mq-base. You can set the abstract attribute from the Management Console.

locked attribute

A locked profile cannot be changed or edited until it is unlocked. You can lock or unlock a profile from the Management Console.

hidden attribute

The hidden attribute is a flag that is typically set on profiles that Fabric creates automatically (for example, to customize the setup of a registry server). By default, hidden profiles are not shown when you run the profile-list command, but you can see them when you add the --hidden flag, as follows:
JBossFuse:karaf@root> profile-list --hidden
fabric                                   1              karaf
fabric-ensemble-0000 0 
fabric-ensemble-0000-1 1 fabric-ensemble-0000
fmc                                      0              default
