User Commandscreate-system-properties(1)


 create-system-properties - adds or updates one or more system properties of the domain, configuration, cluster, or server instance


 create-system-properties --user admin_user [--passwordfile filename] [--host host_name] [--port port_number] [--secure|-s] [--terse=false] [--echo=false] [--interactive=true] [--help] [--target target_name] [name=value)[:name=value]*]


Shared or clustered server instances will often need to override attributes defined in their referenced configuration. Any configuration attribute in a server instance can be overriden through a system property of the corresponding name. This command adds or updates the system properties of a domain, configuration, cluster, or server instance.


-u --user

The authorized domain application server administrative username.

-w --password

The --password option is deprecated. Use --passwordfile instead.


This option replaces the -- password option. Using the --password option on the command line or through the environment is deprecated. The --passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specified format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in capital letters. For example, to specify the domain application server password, use an entry with the following format: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=password, where password is the actual administrator password. Other passwords that can be specified include AS_ADMIN_MAPPEDPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_SAVEDMASTERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_MQPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD, and so on.

-H --host

The machine name where the domain application server is running. The default value is localhost.

-p --port

The port number of the domain application server listening for administration requests. The default port number for Platform Edition is 4848. The default port number for Enterprise Edition is 4849.

-s --secure

If set to true, uses SSL/TLS to communicate with the domain application server.

-t --terse

Indicates that any output data must be very concise, typically avoiding human-friendly sentences and favoring well-formatted data for consumption by a script. Default is false.

-e --echo

Setting to true will echo the command line statement on the standard output. Default is false.

-I --interactive

If set to true (default), only the required password options are prompted.

-h --help

Displays the help text for the command.


In Enterprise Edition, specifies the target on which you are creating the system properties. The valid targets for this command are instance, cluster, configuration, 'domain,' and 'server.' Server is the default option.



The name value pairs (separated by the ":" character) of the system properties to add to the specified target. If any of the system properties were previously defined, it will be updated with the newly specified value.
