When are custom properties created?

Discussion created by Andy Schuler on Mar 2, 2009
I'm working with the PDMW API to create a custom client app and I have a question about custom properties. These properties are specified in the Vault Admin Tool and should be applied to all documents in the vault regardless of document type.

Is it the Vault's responsibility to add these properties to the file or the clients?

It seems when I check something in via the API (using the CheckIn method provided) that only the default 6 properties get added to the document. Is this the correct behavior or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
