The fields for creating an Application.


  • uniqueName optional String

    The Application's unique name. If not specified, Propel will set the ID as unique name.

  • description optional String

    The Application's description.

  • propeller optional Propeller

    The Application's Propeller. If no Propeller is provided, Propel will set the Propeller to P1_X_SMALL.

    A Propeller determines your Application's query processing power. The larger the Propeller, the faster the queries and the higher the cost. Every Propel Application (and therefore every set of API credentials) has a Propeller that determines the speed and cost of queries.
