About Projects

What is a project?

A project is an entity set up within a platform in which you can create apps, jobs, and pipelines. Projects are isolated from each other and this allows you to manage their access rights.

The The "All Projects" page icon is a folder and the same as the "Projects" module. All Projects page gives you access to the platform’s project library.

By default, the page opens when you click the The "Projects" module icon is a folder. Projects module. It gives you the list of the existing projects and enables you to delete them and create new ones.

The project settings are accessible from each of these pages by clicking The settings icon is a gear. Project settings in the right-hand corner of the pages.

Environment Variables Page

The The "Environment variables" module icon is a rectangle with the "VAR" written in it. Environment Variables page gives you access to the platform’s environment variables.

What is an environment variable?

An environment variable is a dynamic value that can be referenced in jobs, limiting the need to modify job execution code every time the value of the variable changes.

Environment variables are listed with some basic information, such as name, description, and application level.

  • The name is mandatory, with a maximum of 255 characters, and unique at the platform level and within a project. It can contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, underscores, hyphens, and periods.

  • The description is optional and have no restrictions, but it’s a good practice to add it and keep it short and informative.

  • The application level is indicated by either the Global or Project label.

Environment variables can be created at the platform or project level—indicated by the label Global or Project respectively— allowing you to manage and limit the access and use according to your needs. Therefore, this means that you will find two Environment Variables pages:

  1. In the The "Projects" module icon is a folder. Projects module: At this level, the The "Environment variables" module icon is a rectangle with the "VAR" written in it. Environment Variables page allows you to access, create, and edit only the global environment variables, that is, environment variables defined for all projects on the platform.
    To access this page click The "Projects" module icon is a folder. Projects > The "Environment variables" module icon is a rectangle with the "VAR" written in it. Environment Variables.

  2. In a project: At this level, the The "Environment variables" module icon is a rectangle with the "VAR" written in it. Environment Variables page gives you access to the environment variables defined for the selected project but also to the global environment variables. However, you can only create and edit environment variables for the project.
    For more information, see the Environment Variables page of a project.

To view the information of an environment variable, click it. A panel opens with the information that you can also edit.
