Adding Deployment Package Properties

Add properties to a deployment package for information that may have values specific to that package. If a deployment package is shared by multiple applications, and if all or most of those applications should use the same value for a deployment package level property setting, you should set the value at the package level. For more information, see How Properties Are Resolved.

To create deployment package properties:

  1. Navigate to Management > Deployment Packages > [select package].
  2. Select the Details tab.
  3. Select Properties in the selection box.
