Use properties

This section provides an overview of the Deployment Automation built-in and user-defined properties and explains how to use them in processes.

Properties are parameters that are referenced in process steps. Values can be preset or resolved at runtime. For process properties, like plugin step properties themselves, a user interface is created so that users can enter values as input properties at runtime. Properties can also be written as output from a process. Property versions are maintained and remain available.
