Environment entries collection

Use this page to view and manage arbitrary name-value pairs of data, where the name is a environment entry key and the value is a string value that can be used to set internal system configuration environment entries.

To view this page, in the console click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name, and then under Server Infrastructure, click Java and process management > Environment entries.


Name (or key) for the environment entry. The name is a string used to set an internal system configuration environment entry.

Each environment entry name must be unique. If the same name is used for multiple environment entries, the value specified for the first environment entry that has that name is used.

Do not start the environment entry names with was. because this prefix is reserved for environment entries that are predefined for WebSphere Application Server.
