Variable Configuration

To start with the variable configuration, please go to the Knowledge Model (KM).

Go through the variables section in the view mode and validate whether the input used for the variables is correct for your business needs. To view all variables in use, you can navigate to the variables section of the KM.

For the apps, only non-auto-generated configurations are used, so you can disable the auto-generated definitions. In some cases, variables are used are for storing values (strings, integers, etc.) that are used inside of KPIs and inefficiencies, such as the Most Favourable Payment Term, for storing target and benchmark values of KPIs and frequently used activity names like the Record Goods Receipt activity.

Some variables are more important than others to update, in the sense that the business logic of the app will not work if they are not set correctly. An example are the variables that reference different fields and activity names, e.g. the ‘Record Goods Receipt’ activity.

However, If you identify some variables that need to be adjusted, you can easily update them directly inside of the variable part of the KM visual editor. Other variables are stored in the plain text variables section of the package settings. These variables can also be changed if needed and are only affecting the package where they are defined.
