Global variables

Global variables are variables that are available project-wide in all fields that accept variables, without the need to specifically generate them. Scriptless supports the following types of global variables:

  • System-defined: Built-in, default variables that return execution-based or account-based information. Execution-based variables change their value depending on the setup for the specific test run, such as environment URL, OS, browser, and device. Account-based variables are static for the current account, such as the org ID, project ID, and tenant ID.

  • User-defined: Custom variables that you can add and edit as needed. They become available for use in the whole project.

The Global Variables tab lists all system- and user-defined variables and lets you add new variables.

To add a new variable:

  1. In the Assets view, in the left pane, click Global Variables.
  2. On the right, click Add Variable.
  3. In the Create a variable form, enter a variable name and value.
  4. Click CREATE.

To edit a user-defined variable:

  1. In the table that lists user-defined variables, move the pointer over the row of the variable you want to edit and click the pencil icon on the right.

  2. In the Update a variable form, edit the name or value as needed.

  3. Click UPDATE.

To delete a user-defined variable:

  • In the table that lists user-defined variables, move the pointer over the row of the variable you want to delete and click the delete icon on the right.

    A message appears to confirm that the variable has been deleted successfully.
