Could anyone give me some scenario which we should use the Global Value?

6 replies

Hi guys.,

Per my understanding, i can use the global value in following scenarios.

  1. The organization want to define some common rules for all developers, for example, we requests all developer store their bot logs in a certain folder.
  2. Some common value, for example, the ERP address, the developers needn't to remember it every time.

Could someone add more scenarios for me?

and I think the global value is defined by AAE_Admin, meaning the Developer can't change its value, If i'm wrong Please correct me.

 

Thanks.

Hi @kint jiang​ ,

 

Usually during Migration from v11 -> A360, we have to replace the $AAApplicationPath$ with a Directory where the bot once used to reference other bots, or files and dependencies from.

 

Similarly, you can use a Global Value to define a common repository path that all bots working in a particular project has to reference data from, instead of having the bot always reference it from a configuration file.

 

Kind Regards,

Thanks Ashwin.

Understood. Then nobody can update the value of the global value except the AAE_Admin, right? Thanks.

To be a bit more specific, you can change it if the Scope is given as Yes during its creation.

If you look here, the scope is given as No, which means I can't update it.
