Set Variable behavior

The Set Variable behavior programmatically modifies the value of your variable. This behavior is part of the overall variable support system in Property Manager that lets you create complex properties without calling your support representative to implement advanced metadata.

Once you create a variable, the Set Variable behavior lets you populate it with values derived from different data sources. For example, you can extract a value from an incoming request, generate a random number, or specify your own expression. To further transform the value, use operations.

To add a Set Variable behavior to a rule, see Add a behavior.


The Set Variable behavior is for user-defined variables. You can achieve similar results for built-in variables by matching directly on an object represented by a variable. For example, you can match directly on a path, so there is no need to match on AK_PATH.
