# Environment properties

Environment properties enable you to store account-wide recipe configuration parameters. Environment properties appear in all recipes as usable values as a child of the Properties datatree.

Environment-level properties are also known as environment variables or configuration variables. They are useful for complex deployment models across connections and recipes.

For example, you can have a property that indicates where to send a notification email. All recipes can look this value up from the data tree (properties section) and send an email to the same recipient.

The environment properties feature is enabled only for certain users. Reach out to your Customer Success Manager to learn more.

You can create property values (name-value pairs) by using the sidebar on the left side of your screen and clicking Tools > Environment properties.

# Using properties in recipes

Environment properties appear in all recipes within the Workato account, under the Properties datatree. Their values correspond to the values defined in the Environment properties interface.

When a recipe is active, Workato looks up its value in the Environment properties interface.
