Automation Anywhere provides powerful pre-defined system variables that you can use to design Logic Blocks.
Note: Though similar, not to be confused with System Variables available in Task Editor.
System Variable types that can be used in the Logic Block include:
- Date/Time: System-related date and time variables.
- Error Handling: Error Handling related variables.
- System: Variables specific to a particular client machine.
Date/Time System Variables
You can use the set of Date and Time system variables to insert or monitor the current date and time of a system as the navigational flow is implemented.
Tip: You can change the date format for the System Date.
Click to change the date format:
Error Handling Variables
Use the set of Error Handling system variables to return task error line number and description.
System Type System Variables
You can use 'System' variables to include parameters in your automation task that are related to a particular computer. The variables return actual system settings and parameters, such as RAM, CPU/RAM usage, and total RAM.
Common Use Case: These variables are useful when the performance of a system needs to be tracked during an activity; for instance load testing.
The following table provides names, return values, and descriptions for the system-related system variables.
*When you select the System variable, a menu is displayed from which you can select the specific system variable (see steps below).
Steps to select System from Variables:
Click F2 and you will see Insert Variable window.
Select System and click Insert; a pop up window for System Variable Option appears.
- Click OK and insert the System Variable.
