use property value in URL endpoint



I am pretty new to ReadAPI. However I have got some question. I would like to use custom property in the URL.


I have created a custom property on Project level. Now I want to use the property in the end point.

I have tried this, 


but I get an http://null (see attached screenshot). 


What am I doing wrong? And how to correct this?

    I think your property expansion needs to be:




    You don't reference a project by name, it is more like a property specified by this project. See the following page for more details:



    As an aside, if you are using project properties to change server names, have you investigated the Environments functionality. This will allow you to easily configure Ready API to switch between a different set of end points, DB connections,etc. eg, Dev, SAT, UAT.
