Description Libor Zoubek 2012-05-18 08:11:40 EDT
Description of problem: I am trying to create several drift definitions on JBoss AS7 Standalone resource. When setting up 'Base Dir' one can pick serveral 'Value Context' when selecting 'fileSystem' value context, setting 'Value Name' is completely clear, it is a path. But when I pick pluginConfiguration or resourceConfiguration I have no clue what to put into 'Value Name' field. 

For exapmle in case of resourceConfiguration, docs says: "Resource configuration, which is a configuration property defined for the resource". That information is enough, but how can I guess configuration property names? If I go to EAP6 resource's Connection properties there is no way how to extract correct property names from that page. The only way I am aware of would be start CLI, retrieve my AS7 resource and pretty.print it's configuration.

I'd be glad when resourceConfiguration,pluginConfiguration or measurementTrait is selected as Value Context, value name field would pop-up with appropriate values.
