Environmental Variables

Environmental variables help you customize engine environments, both globally and for individual projects/jobs.

For example, if you need to configure a particular timezone for a project or increase the length of the session or job timeout windows, you can use environmental variables to do so.

For a list of the environmental variables you can configure and instructions on how to configure them, see Engine Environment Variables.

You can create new environment variables in the following pages:
  • Project Settings > Advanced
  • New Job > Job Settings
  • New Application > Application Settings
  • User Settings > Environment Variables
  • Site Administration > Runtime
To add an environmental variable:
  1. Enter the name and value.
  2. Click Add
  3. Optionally, click Hide/Show to hide the value from viewing by users. This can help with hiding sensitive values stored in environment variables, such as passwords. The value is set to Hide by default.
