Default Values

Last Updated: 02-Oct-19

You use the DefaultValues action within the Actions element. The DefaultValues action collects information from the current system and populates a series of pre-defined variables with corresponding values. Typically, the best place to put the DefaultValues action is at or near the beginning of the Actions element. This enables UI++ to initially collect the default information before performing any other actions, many of which may rely on the information collected. The DefaultValues action collects values in the following categories:

  • Asset
  • Domain
  • Management
  • Network
  • Operating System
  • Security
  • Trusted Platform Module
  • Virtual Machine

You can choose at configuration time which categories that the action collects values for by specifying the ValueTypes attribute. Specify multiple categories using a comma-separated list. Omit the ValueTypes attribute or set it to All to retrieve all default values.

The DefaultValues reference page lists all categories and the values that each collects.

The categories names listed above are not the actual values to use for the ValueTypes attribute. Please see the DefaultValues reference page for the proper category values.
