Application properties are the data definitions that are stored in Process Manager for multiple different processes to use. Application properties are used when multiple processes that connect to Process Manager need to use the same data. For example, you can create application properties for mail server settings. These properties might include a server name and a no-reply email address.
You can use application properties to create widely available and easily edited data.
Application properties exist in profiles in Process Manager. A profile is a group of data that is related to a process instance. After application properties have been saved as a profile, processes can use the profile.
If you have administrator permissions in Process Manager, you can create application properties. Application properties are set in Process Manager under the Admin tab > Data > Application Properties. After you have created application properties, you can use those settings in any workflow project that has access to Process Manager. In your project, you can access application properties in project data under the Application Properties tab.
Profile definition values are the individual properties of the application properties. When creating definition values you do not create their actual values; you merely create them as empty data elements.
Profile definition instances are the actual values of application properties. Each instance has a value and an instance name. Create more than one instance if you want to change definition values regularly. Multiple instances are ready-made values; if you have more than one in place you can switch between them in Workflow Designer.
