Adding Component Properties

Add properties to a component for information that may have values specific to that component. A component property value would override the value for the same-named property at the application level.

To add a property to the selected component:

  1. Navigate to Management > Components > [select component].

  2. Select Properties and then click the Properties tab.

  3. To set a single property, click Add Property.

    1. Fill in the fields as shown in the following table.

      Field Description
      Name Property name
      Description Property description
      Secure Select this if the property should be secure.

      Secure properties are stored encrypted and displayed obscured in the Deployment Automation user interface.

      Value Value for the property that will be used by steps in a process
  4. To set multiple properties, click Batch Edit.

    In the Properties box, enter multiple properties and their values on separate lines as property=value.

    For example, if you had properties host and port, you would enter them as follows:

    host=myServer

    port=8080

    Note: The following restrictions apply to batch edit:

    • The Secure option cannot be set.
    • The value cannot contain the "=" symbol.

  5. Click Save.

To use the property in a process, reference it when you configure a step that uses it. Use the following syntax: ${p:component/<property name>}
