Add or edit application properties

This topic describes how to create and modify application properties. You can add properties one at a time or in a batch.

Add or edit an application property

The value of an application property overrides the value of the same property at the system level.

To add a property to an application:

  1. Navigate to Management > Applications.

  2. Select your application and click the Properties tab.

  3. Click Add Property. The Add Property dialog box opens.
  4. Specify the following details for the new property:

    Field Description
    Name Enter a name for the property.
    Description (Optional) Provide additional information about the property.
    Secure Select this option if you want the property to be secure.

    Secure properties are stored encrypted and displayed obscured in the Deployment Automation user interface.
    Value (Optional) Enter the value of the property to be used by steps in a process.
  5. Click Save.

    To create another property, click Save and New.

To edit a property, click the Edit icon next to the property.

Note: When editing a single property, you can't rename it. To change the name, use the Batch Edit option described in the next section.

To use application properties in a process, reference them in relevant process steps with the following syntax:

${p:application/<property name>}

For details on applying user-defined properties, see How properties are resolved.

Add or edit multiple application properties

To create or update several application properties at once, use Batch Edit.

To add or edit multiple application properties:

  1. Navigate to Management > Applications.

  2. Select your application and click the Properties tab.
  3. Click Batch Edit. The Edit Entry dialog box opens.

  4. In the Properties field, specify properties with or without their values.

    Enter each property on a new line in the following format:

    Format Description

    Use this syntax to specify properties without values. For example, for the port property, enter:


    Note: When you save properties without values, the system automatically changes the myProperty syntax to myProperty=


    Use this syntax for properties with values, for example:


    Note: The following batch editing restrictions apply:

    • You cannot set the Secure option. If you want the properties to be secure, edit them individually as described in the earlier section.
    • The value cannot contain the equals sign (=).
  5. Click Save.
