In CloudBees CD, custom properties are identical to intrinsic properties and when placed on the same object, are referenced in the same manner and behave in every way like an intrinsic, object-level property with one exception: they are not created automatically when the object is created. Instead, custom properties can be added to objects already in the database before a job is started, or created dynamically by procedure steps during step execution. Custom properties in a property sheet can be one of two types: string property or a property sheet property. String properties hold simple text values. Property sheet properties hold nested properties. Nested properties are accessed by way of the property sheet property of their containing sheet.
