Can't find custom property I added in drop down list to allow me to "group by" when selecting nodes for config change template to run on

I created a custom property which I planned to populate with a value which would distinguish it and allow me to choose this particular node to run my config change template on. However when I go to choose nodes on which to execute my script on it is not available to select from the dropdown list??? I can go to my custom property editor on my NPM server and see it there right in front of me but when I go to use it as a selection criteria when using a config change template its not available!

It is however, a property with which I can group nodes from the "Manage Nodes" page of my web console? Anyone encountered this before?

In an older version of SW I had to restart all my servers after adding custom properties to be able to use them anywhere. Thankfully, that is no longer the case in a more recent version.

If you edit the custom property is the Grouping check box selected as below?

What is the object the custom property is based on?  Could you display a screenshot?

I am basing/attaching/associating the custom property on/with a router. Below is the list of custom properties available for me to choose as a selection criteria for the nodes on which I wish to run a config change template


No sign of     include_for_bgp_job  property which I have created.....


However in the Manage Nodes tab of my NPM web console the property is there for me to use as a selection??


And no it's not there if I scroll up in config change template drop down! Ha ha. Strange though, it's like I've maxed the memory on Custom properties????

I have seen hundreds of custom properties before. The way they are added to the database, I'm not really sure there is a maximum number.

That being said, make sure that your NCM and NPM databases have been synchronized after making the custom property.

Settings > NCM Settings > Sync Nodes
