I would like to know if it is possible to have configurable properties for a timer job that can be managed via Central Administration, prior to the job actually running.
Let me paint a usage scenario:
What I would like to do is:
- Install a custom timer job that needs to insert list items into a certain site (the url can change with each installation. This might be dev,test,production.
- Before running the job - be able to somewhere change the URL string, that will point to the site where the timer job will insert list items to.
- Run the job as normally, in the job it checks the configuration and pulls the URL to the site.
This would make the whole process much more easier than what I am doing now, having to hard code this URL in the DLL, and recompile and distribute a fresh specific wsp package per system.
Thanks in advance.
