Upload your part and profile, please
Now you say you have configurable weldment profiles. In this case you need to add the yield property to the configuration specific tab and make sure the same property DOES NOT exist in the custom property tab. Then the property will show up.
The weldment profile properties go to cutlist properties only.

There is pro & cons when adding the material designation to your weldment profile.
- For each structural section you will end up with multiple library profiles or additional configurations due to the material difference i.e HSS A36. HSS 50W etc.
- Changing material after the fact would require to edit or update the profile feature
- Adding a minimum yield configuration property can cause issues. This property won't change if you override & change the material type.
You can have a scenario where you change material from A36 to 50W and still call out a min. yield of 30.
From experience, specifying material in the weldment part (not profile) itself is the preferred method. Easy to check and to modify. You can specify material as per member in the weldment part. Add the proper designations to your material library for proper naming conventions.
If you want to specify min. yield then add it to the Material specs itself.
That custom property in the material database can be read by API.
That would make sure you always pull the the proper min. yield per material selection. Takes a little planning.
For small design probably not recommended. Definitely if you do large structures with various material grades.
That all makes sense now.
