Question

Using configuration files

I have a multi-project solution and in two of the projects I would like to change the executable path for the adapters in those projects, depending on the configuration set. There are also a few other settings but that is where we are starting. I have created a pair of configuration files in the startup project as well as the other projects where the settings need to apply, as I read in the post at https://pdn.pega.com/community/product-support/question/pega-robotics-8x-how-apply-configuration-profiles-each-project. The configuration files in the sub-projects are named the same as the ones in the startup project. When I deploy, the server sees both configurations and allows me to apply one when I assign it to a user. When I run the automation and check the settings, it only shows the string that was in the setting in Studio, not the one which should have been applied through the configuration.

I'm pretty sure I'm just missing a step, but I haven't been able to find anything in the documentation to point me in the right direction.

Did you set the configuration to use in the project properties window?

I used the option when I assigned it to my test user in the Management Console page.

hi. in main project set config value to global property or dictonary, and use this from any project.

Do you have any more information on this method?  http://help.openspan.com/80/Project_Configuration_and_Deployment/Add_Configuration_Item2.htm seems to indicate I can configure settings directly without a step to set variables in between, but if this is what I need to do, so be it.  The only issue is that the configuration files don't seem to show up as something to pull from.

Per the support ticket I opened, this is a defect at least in 8.0.108.2.0 and is being sent to the developers to resolve.  There was no ETA at this point.
