Product Administration Guide > Configuration Rule Template Reference >
Set Initial Resource Value
The Set Initial Resource Value template has the form:
[A resource] has an initial value of [a number]
The Set Initial resource Value template functions as a provide rule and sets the numeric value of a resource at the beginning of a configuration session. The resource must be of data type Number or Integer. The resource can have either an LOV or range of values type domain.
Before specifying a resource using this template, items must be present in the solution that contribute (provide or consume) to the resource. During a configuration session, other rules can increase or decrease the value.
Resource values are under the exclusive control of provide and consume rules. Users cannot set the value of a resource by entering a value in a selection page.
