What are app properties?

In some cases, depending on platform configuration, some resources in the Community Manager developer portal, such as apps, APIs, and users, might include additional properties. If these exist, you'll see them when adding, editing, or viewing the resource.

For apps, if this feature is in place, when you're adding the app you'll be asked for additional information, over and above what's covered in the standard help text. When you've created the app, you'll see a Properties section at the bottom of the app's Details page, displaying the additional information that was collected about the app version. Properties may or may not be collected depending on how the Community Manager developer portal is configured. You can also edit the properties; for more information, see To edit properties for an app version.

An example is shown below.

App Details page: Properties section

If app properties are in place, they appear in these pages:

  • Add App (add properties)
  • Add App Version (add properties)
  • App Details page (view properties)
  • Edit App Version (edit properties)
