Environment file

The XML file that contains the application environment information must be created by a system administrator who understands the relationships of the specified application.

Ideally, this file is prepared when an application is configured on a managed system. The environment file provides information relevant to the organization and to the application.

Environment File Template

Use the following XML template for your environment file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
