This component is used to add data to a variable. This gives you a quick way to create any type of variable to be used throughout your workflow. Every component that is down the path of this component can use its output variable.
This component not only lets you add new data, it also lets you change the value of an existing variable. To do this, you should select a variable as the Variable Name and the data in the Value option replaces the data in the chosen variable. If the Value option is left blank, the variable data gets cleared.
This component can be used to populate the IP address (or fully qualified domain name) of the run time Symantec Management Console. If used for this purpose, this component is normally used with the Create Basic Authentication Token component to set up the full authentication (the Symantec Management Console IP address and authentication credentials) that components can use to access the run time Symantec Management Console.
Generally, if you use the Create Notification Server Credentials component, you do not need to use this component to create a Symantec Management Console IP address variable. However, you may use an output Symantec Management Console IP address variable generated by this component at any place in your workflow instead of the output Symantec Management Console variable generated by the Create Notification Server Credentials component.
One way you can use this component is for forms validation. You can set the component data to logical and the Value to true. Then, in a form, the output variable can be analyzed to see if data was entered into an option.
Data Type: The type of your variable. You may choose from many variable types, including string and long (decimals).
Is Array: If checked, the variable you want to write is in array format (contains multiple instances of the same variable type).
Value: The value you want for your variable. This is how you initialize your variable. The value or values you can enter depend on the datatype you chose and whether or not it is an array.
Variable Name: The variable name you want to use to store your value. You can use a new variable name or the name of an already created variable. The variable type of an already created variable must match the datatype you chose.
