Installation parameters are set during the installation of an app in a space environment and can be modified in subsequent configuration updates. Their values are available across all locations of the app in the space environment. Installation parameters are used to customize apps depending on the environment they are installed in. Installation parameters are commonly used to set default values, to reference content types, or to configure the interaction of the app with third party services.
Note that installation parameters can be read by every user with access to the space environment of the app. Any access tokens stored within them are therefore exposed to these users. We recommend not storing tokens that allow for data manipulation in installation parameters.
For details on how to set and read installation parameters, read our page about App and UI Extension parameters.
