About this task

To use the context button to apply context variables to a Job or Route, proceed as follows:


  1. Double-click the Job or Route to which a context variable is to be added.
  2. Once the Job or Route is opened in the workspace, click the Contexts view beneath the workspace to open it.
  3. At the bottom of the Contexts view, click the button to open the wizard to select the context variables to be applied.
  4. In the wizard, select the context variables you need to apply or clear those you do not need to.
    Note: The context variables that have been applied are automatically selected and cannot be cleared.
  5. Click OK to apply the selected context variables to the Job or Route.
    The Contexts view shows the context group and the selected context variables. You can edit the contexts by clicking the [+] button at the upper right corner of the Contexts view, delete the whole group or any variable by selecting the group name or the variable and clicking the X button, but you cannot edit Repository-stored variables in this view.
