Adding System Properties

You can set global system properties that are then available to be referenced by any process step.

To enter system properties:

  1. Navigate to Administration > System.

  2. Select Properties.

  3. 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
  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=my
    Server
    port=8080

    Note: The following restrictions apply to batch edit:

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

You can now reference the property value in processes using ${p:system/<property name>}.
