 Description  « Hide
Dear all,

What do you think about having the possibility to create server wide variables ?
In some configuration context it would be useful to have varaibles even when you're not in a configuration/build context

Can you please give me an example on how this type of variable can be used?

Benoit Maury-Bouet [27/Feb/20 07:25 AM]
For instance when deifning cloud profiles we could use server wide variables to reference some type of hardware profile without duplicating from one config to another.
Also in dashboards scripting for instance, as we are not in a build context, I sometime have to "hardcode" certain url / values that could be in a server wide variable.
etc.

That makes sense. Thanks for clarification.

The user attributes setting for each node in grid page can serve this purpose. To get value of an attribute from current node, just call ${node.getAttribute("attributeName")}

Robin Shen [29/Feb/20 12:29 AM]
Close as user attributes can serve this purpose well

Benoit Maury-Bouet [02/Mar/20 08:56 AM]
But the user attributes is not a very good fit for "secret/password" type of variables right ?

Robin Shen [02/Mar/20 11:57 PM]
Thanks for the info. Reopened now

Hello,

I am also interested on this subject. A global variable system, not only for Cloud Profiles but also for Dashboards, could be really useful!

Could you please update this 'major' topic after more than a year of inactivity?

Robin Shen [07/Jun/21 11:53 AM]
Will get this into next major version of QB planned for next year.
