Adding Application Properties

Add properties to an application for information that may have values specific to that application. An application property value would override the value for the same-named property at the system level.

  1. Navigate to Management > Application > [select application].
  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.
    1. 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:




      The following restrictions apply to batch edit:

      • The Secure option cannot be set.
      • The value cannot contain the "=" symbol.
  5. Click Save.
To use the application property in a process, reference it when you configure a step that uses it. Use the following syntax: ${p:application/<property name>}
