More information on the following fields would be nice -- Jimcoyne22 01:30, 14 September 2011 (UTC) -- Jimcoyne22 01:30, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

It would be nice to get some info on the Choices, Ignore cache and Private fields. Thanks


The current explanation for 'Ignore Cache' uses a double negative and is misleading (and possibly incorrect, since it currently says that checking the 'Ignore Cache' option will cause the cache to be flushed). - Sean.jacobs 03:33, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the suggestion. Please see the new field descriptions in the Creating a Properties Module section. I have also reworded the note about the Ignore Cache option to be clearer.
Thankyou; it is much clearer now. - Sean.jacobs 01:59, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Jim, per your comment about Choices, I added some text under the "Type" heading. I also added some text to the "Value" description to clarify some common mistakes.

Type field description -- Dklimas (talk) 07:38, 8 August 2014 (PDT)

The type field (in the table) description only has the word false instead of a description of the type field.

Re: Type field description -- Amy.bowman (talk) 10:09, 11 August 2014 (PDT)

Thanks for your feedback. I will look into this.

A rendering error in the table was truncating the text. I have resolved the error and the correct content now appears. Thanks for the heads up!

Better explanation of the property function can be found on the System Properties Best Practices page -- Jochen Larbig (talk) 06:16, 19 September 2014 (PDT)

After referring a colleague to this page, we discovered its not very helpful to ServiceNow beginners.

The System Properties Best Practices page explains the use case for properties a lot better than this page and even mentions the gs.getProperty() function. Maybe consider merging both pages?

Thank you for your feedback and suggestion. I sent your comments to the team.

Password vs. Password2 -- Slava (talk) 00:51, 7 September 2015 (PDT)

The difference between Password and Password2 types is not clear at all. Can some clarification for these property types be added to the article please? Thanks in advance.

Re: Password vs. Password2 -- Julie.phaviseth (talk) 11:10, 9 September 2015 (PDT)

Good question, Slava. I forwarded it to the team to clarify.
