Configuring App Properties
You can late-bind property values for a TIBCO BusinessWorks™ App or Node.js app on the Apps page, in the Environment Controls tab. The current values of app properties can be inspected, modified, or reset to their defaults.
New application variables for TIBCO BusinessWorks Apps must be added in TIBCO Business Studio. For Node.js apps, the
tibcli-node tool must be used to modify the manifest, as described in Using Environment Variables in Node.js Apps. Once the app is repushed, the variables will display in the Environment controls tab after refreshing the page.
Saving the new configuration changes will restart the app with the new values. This enables you to modify properties without pushing and building a new app archive, speeding up changes for moving from test to production, or changing credentials or other variables.
To view and change app properties:
- Log in to TIBCO Cloud™ Integration.
- Click the Apps tab.
- Click a running TIBCO BusinessWorks App or Node.js app in the listed apps.
- Click the Environment Controls tab.
Click Application variables.
A list of app variables is shown in the Application Variables pane. For each property, the name, type, and value are shown.
When you first open the Environment controls tab, application variables are shown. You can also view and edit environment variables by clicking Application Variables.
To change a property, click the displayed value and enter a new value. To return the value to its default value, click Set to Default.
Note: Password property values are encrypted on the server using strong encryption. They can only be used by your app and can not be inspected. You can set password properties in either plaintext or by using the BusinessWorks obfuscated format. See Configuring App Properties With the TIBCO® Cloud - Command Line Interface for more details on using
After you have made changes, the No updates to push text in the upper right will change to two links: Cancel Changes and Update App. Click Update App to restart the app with the new values, or click Cancel Changes to revert changes to the default values.
