Adding Environment Properties

Add properties to an environment for information that may have values specific to that environment. If an environment is shared by multiple applications, and if all or most of the applications should use the same value for an environment property setting, you should set the value at the environment level. You can override the value for the same-named property at the application environment level as needed.

Note: If component environment properties have been added for a component mapped to the environment, those properties will appear in the environment's Component Mapping page with the defined fields available for you to enter values. See Adding Component Environment Properties.

To create environment properties:

  1. Navigate to Management > Environments > [select environment].

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