  2. Provide a Name for your new attribute.

  3. Choose the Attribute Type.

Create as many attributes as needed to document your Environment configurations. Consider what information is relevant for your Jira users. If you have numerous attributes, use the Filter Displayed Attributes search box to locate them quickly.

Secured Attributes

Secured Attributes are particularly useful for storing credentials or any sensitive data that shouldn't be accessible to all users authorized to view an Environment.

When you activate the Secured option, you can limit the visibility of sensitive attributes. Only users with the View Secured Attributes or Edit Secured Attributes permissions will have access to view or update these attributes.

For detailed information, refer to the Security & Permissions documentation.
