Configure separate values for different production levels. At runtime, the system uses the application setting value that corresponds with the current production level.
Before you change an application setting value, ensure that the application setting is in an unlocked ruleset. For example, if you need to change the production value, the application setting rule should be in the production ruleset.
In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
Expand the SysAdmin category, and then click Application Settings.
Open the application setting rule that you want to change.
In the Value column, enter the setting value for the specified production level.Note: The fields in the Value column display differently depending on the value type that you select in the Value type field. For example, if you choose String/text, the Value column displays fields in which you enter a text value.
Production level values typically signify the following environments:
- 1 - Sandbox
- 2 - Development
- 3 - Quality assurance
- 4 - Staging
- 5 - Production
In the Description field, enter a description for the corresponding value.
- Creating an application setting
Create an application settings rule for all deployments of your system, customized by production level.
- Configuring application settings
Application settings rules define run-time settings that can differ based on a system's production level, and which are resolved at run time through rule resolution. Application settings are identified by name and owning ruleset. The owning ruleset functions as a namespace and does not have to equal the ruleset that contains the rule.
