Adding Application Environment Properties

You can define environment properties at the application environment level. The application environment properties are specific to the application's use of an environment. Environment properties added at this level appear under the application environment's Properties tab, and not under the environment's Properties tab, because they are set for this application only.

Environment property values for same-named properties are resolved at the most specific level. An environment property value set at the application level overrides one with the same name set directly on the environment property level. An environment property value set at the component level overrides any with the same name set directly on the environment property level or on the application environment level.

If component environment properties have been added for a component mapped to the environment and you want to set those values, see Setting Component Environment Property Values.

To create application environment properties:

  1. Navigate to Management > Application > [select application].

  2. Select the Environments tab.

  3. Click the environment name to which you want to add properties and select View Details from the list.

  4. Select the Properties tab.

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

    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
  6. 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.
  7. Click Save.

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