Agent plugins can provide canned DynaGroup expressions. Such expressions become available to a user in UI when he creates DynaGroup definition and can serve as examples. Optionally such expressions can be auto-deployed as regular dynaGroups.

Descriptor file

DynaGroup expressions live in standalone XML descriptor file META-INF/rhq-group-expressions.xml within your plugin.jar. There is a XSD being used to validate and parse descriptor.

See following example from Platform Plugin:

More examples can be found for example in JBossAS7 plugin.

Server-side aspects

All definitions from all plugins are listed in Provided Expressions list whenever user edits or creates DynaGroup Definitionin UI.

Definitions having createByDefault=true

  • DynaGroup definition is created or updated when plugin is deployed to server.
  • DynaGroup definition is kept in sync with plugin whenever new version of plugin is deployed to server.
  • All DynaGroup definitions provided by plugins are removed when plugin is uninstalled from server.
  • When user changes plugin provided DynaGroup it gets detached from plugin - such definition will no longer be updated when plugin updates.
