Environment Variables

Information that you register in the environment variables can be used in any step of the integration flow immediately after the registration.

To create an environment variable, click the box icon icon on the editing menu.

Environment variables are not shared between different integration flows. You can only register environment variables for the current integration flow.

The form to register environment variables is divided in the Information and Folders sections.

  • Information: contains the fields to enter the name and the description of the integration flow’s environment variables.

  • Folders: displays the root folder, where the variables are saved.

On your first access, you will see the name of the root folder in the variable’s header and the + ADD A NEW VARIABLE button to add new variables.

Registration and deletion of an environment variable

If the folder is empty, just click + ADD A NEW VARIABLE. If there are variables registered, click the icon moreIcon on the right of the last variable displayed on the screen.

Next, fill in the variable’s registration fields. You have to fill in the Type and Variable fields to be able to save the variable.

  • Type: contains the type of the variable: String, Number, Boolean and Double.

  • Variable: field to enter the variable’s name. You cannot register the same variable more than once. If you leave the field blank, you won’t see the variable when you configure the steps.

  • Value: field to enter variable’s value. The variable can be used even if this field is blank, but if the variable needs a value to be executed, an error will be shown in the logs during the execution of the integration flow. You can hide the variable’s value by clicking the lock next to it.

To edit the information you registered, just click the fields you want to edit and make the change. However, if you need to edit a variable that is already in use, you also have to change it in the step that is using it. In that case, you will see an alert icon on the step indicating that you need to make this change.

To delete a variable from the folder, click the trash can icon on the right of the line of the variable you want to delete.

Click SAVE to save the environment variable’s registration and click DELETE to delete it.

When you click DELETE, you will delete the entire environment variable’s registration.
