Creating Enterprise Variables

Creating New Enterprise Variable#

You can create a new Enterprise Variable from the Enterprise Variables page under the Assets menu in the side panel. You can create Enterprise Variables only if your role has been provided permissions, as described in the steps below:

  1. Login into Control Room

  2. Expand Assets in the side panel

  3. Click on Enterprise Variables

  4. Click on + to add a new Enterprise Variable, as shown in the screenshot below

  5. Fill in the details about this new Enterprise Variable that you want to create

    New Enterprise Variable

  6. Click on Add button

Cloning from an existing Enterprise Variable#

You can clone an existing Enterprise Variable and change its properties. To do that: Global scoped Enterprise Variable to your User scope. This way, you will create a user copy of the same variable and modify the value to be used in your scope. To do that:

  1. Login into Control Room
  2. Expand Assets in the left menu panel
  3. Click on Enterprise Variables
  4. Select the Enterprise Variable that you want to clone in the grid
  5. Right-click and click on Clone as shown in the screenshot below. Clone
  6. Modify the properties and click on Add

Creating through Process Designer#

The need for Enterprise Variable for your process will arise when you are defining your process. Hence, it makes more sense for a user to define all the Enterprise Variables needed during the process designing stage. Hence, Process Designer provides the designer with either adding an existing Enterprise Variable or creating a new Enterprise Variable needed for this process. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Start Process Designer

  2. Create a new process OR Open an existing process

  3. Go to Project Explorer panel

  4. Right-click on Enterprise Variables and select Add New:

  5. Fill in the details of the new Enterprise Variable as shown in the screenshot below:

    New Enterprise Variable

  6. Click on the Create button

The enterprise variable added newly in Process Designer would be created in Control Room during the publishing process into Control Room.
