To set a profile’s attribute values, use the following rhino-console command or related MBean operation.

Console command: setprofileattributes


setprofileattributes <table-name> <profile-name> (<attr-name> <attr-value>)*
    Set the current values of a profile (use "" for default profile). The
    implementation supports only a limited set of attribute types that it can
    convert from strings to objects


$ ./rhino-console setprofileattributes testtable testprofile Address IP:
Set attributes in profile testtable/testprofile


White space, commas, quotes

If a profile or profile table name or an attribute name or value contains white space or a comma, you must quote the string. For example:

$ ./rhino-console setprofileattributes "testtable 2" "testprofile 2" SubscriberAddress "my address" forwarding true

If the value requires quotes, you must escape them using a backslash "\" (to avoid them being removed by the parser). For example:

$ ./rhino-console setprofileattributes testtable testprofile attrib "\"The quick brown fox\""

MBean operation: getProfile



public getProfile(String profileTableName,String profileName)
    throws NullPointerException, UnrecognizedProfileTableNameException,
          UnrecognizedProfileNameException, ManagementException;


This operation requires that you specify the profile table’s:

  • profileTableName — name of the profile table to get the profile from.

  • profileName — name of the profile.


Profile MBean state

This operation returns an ObjectName, which the management client can use to access a Profile MBean for this specific profile. This MBean will be in the read-only state, so the management client can only read the profile attributes.

To put the MBean into the read-write state, invoke ProfileMBean.editProfile(). This will give you access to the profile’s attributes using the MBean’s getter and setter methods. You cannot see the profile’s new values until you commit the Profile MBean’s state, using the ProfileMBean.commitProfile() operation.

Note For more about Profile MBeans, their requirements and restrictions, please see chapter 10.26 "Profile MBean" in the SLEE 1.1 Specification.
