Detailed Description

A SAS Application (SoftwareComponent) is a great place to store app specific parameters. There are two main places those params can be stored: 1) Configuration, and 2) Extensions. The second location will enable end users to modify parameters even if they don't have the Configuration Manager plugin in SMC. This macro can be used after creating an application with the macro. If a parameter with the same name exists, it is updated. If it does not, it is created.
