Types of dynamic variables

This chapter provides information about three types of fields supported by dynamic variables.

There are three types of fields supported by dynamic variables. Using correct formatting, you can define:

  • Text Field
  • Single Select
  • Multi Select
Tip
Add * at the end of the placeholder to make the field required. Use the | mark as a separator to create Select options. For example: [City|Warsaw|London|Berlin].

Following examples assume you are using brackets as a start and an end pattern of your placeholders.

Placeholder Field type Field name Field options Required
[Version] Text field Version - false
[CityIWarsawILondonIBerlin] Single select City City, Warsaw, London, Berlin false
[City*IWarsawILondonIBerlin] Multi select City Warsaw, London, Berlin true
[Version]* Text field Version - true
