Create or edit a custom variable
When you create a new custom variable, the New Custom Variable view opens on the right side of the page. To begin, give your variable a name and brief description.
The custom variable name can consist of no more than 64 alphanumeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) and underscore.Choose the Type of custom variable and add a default value that corresponds to the type. If you choose DateTime, use the calendar widget to select a default date and time or enter your own value in this format: "yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss.SSSZ".
Copy a custom variable
You can copy an existing variable with the Copy button (). This opens the New Custom Variable view with the copied information. The name of the variable includes "_N", where "N" is the number of the copy. For example: CV_DateTime_1, CV_DateTime_2, and so on.
Delete a custom variable
To delete a custom variable, just click the delete icon ().
