Many object types allow you to set properties for the object. Some object types show you default, inherited, and modified values. 

Depending on the object type, you can also view the other interrelated or dependent properties. 

To add properties

  1. Right-click the object name from the list of objects and choose Properties
    The options vary but in many cases you'll see a list of property name and value pairs.
  2. Click Add Property to enter each new property name and value pair. They are added to the group Miscellaneous. 
  3. Click Add.

To view or edit existing properties

  1. Right-click the object name from the list of objects and choose Properties. For cubes, see Using cube properties.
    The options vary but in many cases you'll see a list of property name and value pairs.
  2. Expand the group names to see the properties in that group.
  3. Click Search to type property names and quickly find values.
  4. Click Add Property to enter each new property name and value pair.
  5. Click the minus icon next to properties you have added to remove them.
  6. Click the i symbol to view a description of the property, or click Show Description.
  7. Use the Action menu  next to the i symbol to specify whether to use the default or modified properties.
  8. Click Save when finished.

Some object types allow you to use the minus button to delete other properties. For example, connections or properties that you add.

Default, Inherited, and Modified value indicators

The visual indicators let you know if a property is using a default or modified value or if it has been inherited. 

Properties color key

Default properties are the initial recommended value set for the object by Kyvos.

Inherited properties may come from the system, connection, or from other dependent entities.

Modified properties have a value other than the the default or inherited value. This is the default mode for all user-defined properties.

Dependencies

If a property has dependent properties, then a link indicating the number of dependencies found is displayed to the right of that property name and you can view the dependent properties by clicking that link. Click the arrow near the top of the page to return to the previous view. For example, in this cube, kyvos.records.skipbadrows has 2 dependent properties:
kyvos.build.blankvalue.badrow
kyvos.records.skipbadrows.threshold

Dependent properties link and detail view

Filtering properties

You can filter based on the default, inherited, or modified values to see only selected properties.

To filter properties

  1. Right-click the object name from the list of objects and click Properties.
  2. Select a group and expand the category of properties you want to view.
  3. Click Value at the top of the column and select the values to filter by.
  4. Click the X next to a filter value to remove that filter.

For some types of objects such as cubes, you can select elements within an object and view their properties in the Properties panel for that element. Those properties are covered in other topics.
