Axon.ivy 7.0 - the Digital Business Platform - is out now...

What's the best way to create and read an application variable in Xpert.ivy?

I would like to create an application variable to store general information and all request can read that application variable.

To store configuration information you can use global variables.

A global variable is created in the Configuration Dialog Editor (Project tree: Definition > Configuration). Select Global Variables in the Configurations tree and use the context menu Add Configuration to add a new global variable (e.g. myFileDirectory). In ivyScript you can access the value of the global variable by using:


On the server you can change the value of a global variable in the Admin UI.

Global variables also support environments. This means, it is possible to configure different values for a global variable one for each environment.
