Global variable - availability

Hi.

 

Waiting with bated breath here for global variables to be available in May. It was originally April but pushed out to May - here's hoping. There really is no workaround for these.

Any news ? Anyone ?

In addition to the above, I've established that :

  • Setting a global boolean variable from an action does not work - the variable can not be tested for true/false or passed to another action
  • Attempting to pass a previously set global boolean variable to a subsequent action fails. The action is never called (The PA action run history does not show any activity) and the 'bot craps out. 
  • On one occasion this global boolean variable showed up as shown in the image below from within the topic that defined it - spaces at the front of the variable name and all options greyed out.
  • A workaround solution to the whole issue is to use global String variables set to "True"/"False".

I raised a product defect and the above issues are now fixed. There is one outstanding issue still under investigation - the variables widget in the PVA authoring console displays multiple versions of the same variable.
