Creating An Application Property

You create new application properties in the Properties page of an application in TIBCO Business Studio. The application properties editor can also be used to create and manage custom profiles. You can also promote a module property to be an application property.

Important: If you create a new application property, be sure to map a module property to it. An application property cannot be used directly it must be mapped to a module property, so that the module property inherits its value. You can then use the module property in your process.
Caution: When pushing an application to TIBCO Cloud Integration, make sure that the application properties of type string are not enclosed in double quotes to avoid getting an error, Build Type Null not supported. For example,

See Promoting Module Properties for Visibility at the Application Level for details on promoting module properties.

The application properties editor can be used to create and manage new application profiles. You can add a new application property to a profile, rename a profile, and also delete a profile. Application profiles can also be exported from an application, and used in a different application. Similarly, exported profiles can be imported into a different application.

Follow these steps to create a new application property:

Procedure

  1. In the Project Explorer, fully expand <application_name>.application.
  2. Double-click Properties under Package Unit to open the application properties in the right pane.
  3. Click Application in the Properties column and click New Property.
    A new property gets created under Application.
  4. Click the property name to edit it.
  5. Click the corresponding default profile column (the default column is indicated with [ ] around it) or another profile column in case you have multiple profiles set up for the property to enter a value for the property.
  6. Save your application.
    Important: Be sure to map a module property to the newly created application property. Keep in mind that an application property can only be used when mapped to a module property. See Using an Application Property for details on mapping a module property to an application property.
