An application variable stores the value of a primary field. You can
create an application variable explicitly, or convert a value in a rule
expression to an application variable.
Restriction: You cannot associate an auxiliary table field with
an application variable.
Application variables provide the following benefits:
- Designers can assign a default value to an application variable
once, and then reuse the application variable in multiple rules in the process
- Designers can change the default value of an application variable,
and all rules that reference that variable will use the new default value.
- Designers can use the values in application variables to control
the behavior of controls, fields, and widgets on custom forms. Form
controls can reference application variables to dynamically change the behavior
of the form and its display.
- Administrators can override the value of an application variable
for individual projects in
SBM Application Administrator.
This allows administrators to tailor workflows based on business needs for
various projects. For example, items in one project may need to move to the
Review state based on one date; items in
another project may move to this state based on a different date. For more
information, see the
SBM Application Administrator
or online help.
