Add or edit CSA properties

You can edit all the CSA properties in HCM through the hcm-csa.yaml file. Some of the properties already exist in the hcm-csa.yaml file as environment properties which can be modified. If a property that needs to be modified does not exist in the file, it can be added. All the properties must follow the following naming conventions:

  • It must begin with 'CSA_PROP_'
  • All dots (.) should be converted to underscore (_)
  • If there is a case change from lower to upper in a property, both must be separated with an underscore (_): Example RequestEngine must be converted to REQUEST_ENGINE.
  • The property should be in upper case

Note These naming conventions are only applicable when you are customizing the properties present in file to define environment variables in hcm-csa.yaml file.

This environment property must be added in the hcm-csa.yaml file as:
