Operating System(s)

  • All Unix
  • All Windows


  • Deployment Automation 6.1.2
  • Deployment Automation 6.1.3
  • Deployment Automation 6.1.4
  • Deployment Automation 6.1.5
  • Deployment Automation 6.2


By default, Deployment Automation resolves expressions in Set and Switch steps, but you can configure the server so that it doesn't. 

For Example:
If you have an expression in a Switch step as follows:
${p:myVar1} + 1
${p:myVar1} equals to 2

If the resolver is turned on (set to true):           

The result will be 3

If the resolver is turned off (set to false):

It will remain ${p:myVar1} + 1


To configure the Set and Switch step expression evaluation:

1. Navigate to the Deployment Automation Tomcat WEB-INF\classes directory. Depending on your version of Deployment Automation, the default directory structure is one of the following:
    ..\common\Tomcat 8.5\webapps\da\WEB-INF\classes
    ..\common\Tomcat 8.0\webapps\da\WEB-INF\classes
    ..\common\Tomcat 8.0\webapps\serena_ra\WEB-INF\classes
2. Edit the Deployment Automation configuration file. Depending on your version of Deployment Automation, you'll see one of the following files:
3. Set the propertiesResolverConfig entry to true or false.
In the following example, the value is set to false, which means it will NOT resolve the expression as part of the step. The default value is true.
