Task References

On this page:



The newVariable task creates a new job variable. The result is similar to promoting an automatic task's outgoing variable to a job variable. You can create new boolean, number, string, object, or array variables.


Property Description
New Variable Name Type a name for the new variable. Job Variable names must adhere to the IAP Naming Conventions.
Value Location Specify where to find the new variable's value (a job variable, a static value, or an earlier task). Select the appropriate reference task then either select the reference variable or type a new description for a static reference.
Value If value location is static, the Value field becomes a text edit box; type the new value. Otherwise the Value field becomes a dropdown list; select an existing job or task variable.
