Hello, I miss some capabilities to manage custom application properties for Java application in SAP Cloud platform (NEO environment) as it is possible for SAP Netweaver AS Java (

Can someone point me in the right direction? How can I manage custom application properties (e.g. a scheduler cron intervall) without changing source code and redeployment?

Hi Gregor,

NW-AS Java has that feature built in by SAP and than you could manage it via Config Tool.

If the configuration is simple, your could use the neo SDK parameter "--ev" documented here. This will set environment variables that you could update via automation using neo console client. Then, you could retrieve its values using:


Check also libraries out there that facilitate this task, like Spring.
