As far as I've been able to tell, the only way to add custom (agent) properties is through the conf/buildAgent.properties File.
While changes to the file are properly picked up a few moments after changing it, I've been wondering why it is that these properties can only be set by manually editing this file.
If I have multiple agents, the "natural" way for me would have been to manage all stuff like local paths etc. through agent properties (lots better that mesing around with environment variables, IMHO).
So it would really be quite an "obvious" feature to be able to centrally manage these properties via the Webinterface.
So, since the Webinterface does not allow me to manage the properties (only to view them), I though I might be missing something -- that is, that my wish to be able to fully manage/edit these properties via the web interface is the result of me misunderstanding some usage pattern for TeamCity.
thanks for any input,
