The parent procedure, Proc-A, calls the sub-procedure, Proc-B. VM_Mappings/Nested_VM is a Nested Property Sheet in the Custom Procedure Parameters in the called procedure, Proc-B.
How do you reference the parent nested property sheet in the child procedure?
To use a /myProcedure call in a sub-procedure, you can use the following commands.
- To reference the nested property sheet in Proc-B, use this command:
- To directly reference the nested property sheet, use this ectool command:
ectool getProperty "/myProject/procedures/Proc-B/VM_Mappings/Nested_VM"
However, if the procedure names are not available or change because of the implementation, you can access the nested property sheet with these more generic commands:
- echo $[/projects/$[/myParent/projectName]/procedures/$[ec:procedureName]/VM_Mappings/Nested_VM]
- ectool getProperty /projects/$[/myParent/projectName]/procedures/$[ec:procedureName]/VM_Mappings/Nested_VM
