Property Manager Editor

The Property Manager Editor has the following main sections:

  • Property Version Information displays version information about the property.
  • Property Hostnames lets you add a property hostname.
  • Property Variables gives you more control over your configuration, letting you create complex properties without calling support to implement advanced metadata.
  • Property Configuration Settings contains the rules for your configuration. Rules consist of match criteria and behaviors (see Figure 1). If a request fulfills the conditions in the match criteria, your Web Performance product applies the behaviors in that rule. The Default Rule, however, has no match conditions because the behaviors apply to all requests.

The order of rules matters. If a particular behavior appears in multiple rules, the last rule that matches to a request dictates which instance of the behavior applies. For example, you might set a caching behavior to No store in the default rule, and then set child rules that override that in certain circumstances. In Figure 2, a request for matches the Default Rule, Rule 1, and Rule 3, which all having different caching settings. The last one that matches—Rule 3—is the rule that applies.

Note: Only one rule’s match criteria and behaviors are visible at a time. To change which rule’s settings are shown, select an item on the rule menu.
