Learn what global variables are and how they are used in Digibee iPaaS.
Global variables are designed to support and accelerate pipeline development by creating global variables that allow the same parameters to be used in different initiatives and the same information to be reused. They optimize work time in the development of projects and allow the exchange of information between users.
Maintainability has also been improved, as you can change the parameters used by a number of pipelines by changing only the value of the global parameter. If you want to learn more about editing and changing a Global, read this article.

How to create a global

Follow the next steps to create a global:
  1. 1.
    Sign in to the Digibee Integration Platform;
  2. 2.
    Click the Settings icon;
  3. 3.
    Enter the menu option Globals.
  4. 4.
    Click the + Create button in the upper right corner;
  1. 5.
    Fill out the form with the following information:
  • Global name: Global name that will be referenced in the pipeline.
  • Category: Used to group globals by category.
  • Description: Text that describes what is the global being created.
  • Test environment: Global's value in the test environment.
  • Prod environment: Global's value in the production environment.
Note: If there are other environments in your realm they will also be listed.
  1. 6.
    After filling in this information, click Save in the lower right corner.
After performing these steps, the global will be successfully created.
Important: There is no encryption method in the globals, so the data used can be viewed by other users with access to the screen. If you need to store encrypted data, please use Accounts.

How to use globals

The globals can be used as follows:
The Intellisense automatically detects the fields that can use globals as a parameter and display them next to the component configuration by clicking on the desired global.
You can also reference a global directly by its expression in the Database URL field. Just type {{global.GlobalName}} and after the dot replace the GlobalName in the expression with the name of the desired global, referenced as Global name in the Global configuration information, as we saw above.
See the following example:
