Variable Reference

The Variable Reference icon displayed next to a text field indicates that the field can be populated by referencing a defined variable or the property of another activity or workflow or Environments. Use the Browse Variables dialog box to select a defined variable or reference an object to populate a field. The SAVE button does not activate until a valid property or variable is selected. The different types of data that you can refer:

  • ENV: You can choose environment settings as variables such as ACTION ORCHESTRATOR_LOOP_LIMIT.

  • Global: You can choose global variables that you have created such as Date Time, Table, Boolean, and so forth.

  • Workflow: You can choose output of the workflow as variables such as Instance ID, Start Time, and so forth.

  • Activities: You can choose the activity properties as variables such as End time, Start time, Succeeded, and so forth.

  • Trigger: You can choose the trigger properties as variables.

Depending on the object type, some of these variables might not be available.
