Configuring the Nolio Application

An application process is used to run the component processes you need. Most of the properties that are needed for the component processes should be set at the application level, because many properties are used by more than one component process.

Tip: For the quickest implementation, import the sample environment and application and modify the properties to suit your needs.

To configure the application:

  1. Create an application that will contain your properties and component processes or select an existing one. For example, Nolio Application.

  2. If you imported the sample application, edit the application and change the application name and description to match your implementation's values.

  3. Add properties to your application that are common to all component processes, or modify the existing imported values to match your system information. For example, the connection information property values are as follows:

    • NOLIO_SERVER_URL: value <your server URL>
    • NOLIO_SERVICE_USER: value <your admin username>
    • NOLIO_SERVICE_PASSWORD: value <your admin password>
  4. Add the following processes to your application if they have not already been imported.

    • Get Applications
    • Get Environments
    • Get Processes
    • Get Process Tags
    • Get Server Types
    • Run Process
  5. Add the properties to the application processes that the component processes will inherit, or change them in the imported application. Most properties use variables, such as the following for Run Process:

    • Application: value ${p:NOLIO_APPLICATION}
    • Environment: value ${p:NOLIO_ENVIRONMENT}
    • Process: value ${p:NOLIO_PROCESS}
    • Process Tag: value ${p:NOLIO_PROCESS_TAG}
    • Servers: value ${p:NOLIO_SERVERS}
    • Parameters: value ${p:NOLIO_PARAMETERS}
