Variable Manager

The Variable Manager allows you to define variables. The Variable Manager dialog box has two panes. The left pane displays a tree that shows variables and initialization blocks, and the right pane displays details of the item you select in the left pane.
There are two classes of variables: repository variables and session variables.
  • A repository variable has a single value at any point in time. There are two types of repository variables: static and dynamic. Repository variables are represented by a question mark icon.
  • Session variables are created and assigned a value when each user logs on. There are two types of session variables: system and nonsystem.
    System and nonsystem variables are represented by a question mark icon.
Initialization blocks are used to initialize dynamic repository variables, system session variables, and nonsystem session variables. The icon for an initialization block is a cube labeled i.
