Update System Properties


This operation updates one or more system properties. When using this operation, all current system properties must be passed through in the request with the new properties or changes to pre-existing values. The current properties can be retrieved from the JSON view of the properties resource and carried over as input for the properties parameter for this operation. Only new system properties added to the JSON object, or properties that have had their values updated, will be modified by the operation.

Request parameters


The JSON object containing the system properties to be added or updated.


At this time, no system properties can be updated.


The response format. The default response is html.

Values: html | json | pjson

System properties


The URL to the version manifest used in the upgrade process. This property should not be modified.


Sets the timeout (in seconds) for the startup of containers during the upgrade process. By default, this property is set to 900.

Example usage

Before calling this operation, the current system properties configured for the deployment should be gathered from the properties resource. The JSON view of the resource is demonstrated below. These properties will be passed in with new properties, or modified values, in the properties parameter:

  "versionManifestURL": "",
  "containerStartUpTimeoutSeconds": 900

The following is a sample POST request that demonstrates updating the deployment's system properties to include the versionManifestURL and containerStartUpTimeoutSeconds properties:

POST /context/admin/system/properties/update HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: []

  "versionManifestURL": "",
