Applies for EMv6 & EMv7
The "Variables" window can be used to view and edit variables created in the EM and to create and import new variables. These variables are used in OSD configurations.
To create a new variable, you must first select the variable type; options include Automatic (value from inventory data, e.g., an SQL table), Manual (value entered manually) or List (value selected from a list with several values specified by the administrator).
Depending on the selected type, you must now define whether the variable can be empty, whether a default value can be selected and who may enter the value.
