Manage variables

The variables page lets you add variables and manage existing variables. It also allows you to inspect variables and identify whether a variable is being referenced (or used) in other variables or dashboard.


You can move a variable up or down the list using the up and down arrows respectively.


To clone a variable, click the clone icon from the set of icons on the right. This creates a copy of the variable with the name of the original variable prefixed with copy_of_.


To delete a variable, click the trash icon from the set of icons on the right.
