OWB – Configuration Templates, Default Values
By David Allan-Oracle on Aug 13, 2012
The 11gR2 release of OWB introduced ways of overriding the default values for properties – users may wish to change the seeded default values for properties (for all objects of a type. You can do this using the enterprise feature supplied in Configuration Templates.
These configuration templates are defined on the global tree, once you create a configuration template it is used in a configuration – then any objects created will inherit these default values.
You can create a new template and provide a name and description;
This then brings up the editor for the configuration template, the properties are in the tree, and the columns such as PRODUCTION_DEFAULTS is where you can change the property value.
So for example if you wanted to change the property value for Generation Mode – so rather than generation All Operating Modes which is the default, you can just generate Set Based, you would find this property;
Then change the value to Set Based for your configuration template;
Lots of property defaults are here, see there is also one for Default Operating Mode, if you were to change the default code gen to just be Set Based, it makes sense to also change the default operating mode to Set Based.
Remember these are defaults so you are not setting specific values on an object – these are the defaults of o overriden value is specified. There are many other interesting properties from tablespace info for tables to all sorts of properties for mappings.
The final piece of the jigsaw is to use this configuration template in a configuration – otherwise it will never be used.
