Constants

Integration developers can use constants to help non-technical users manipulate variables within integration scripts. Constants can be defined and implemented within the scripts when the integration is created, and users can update the values for the constants without needing to edit the scripts.

For example, you could use a constant to represent:

  • the time zone when posting date stamps to a customer's help desk;
  • the name of a third-party user account when making updates via an API; or,
  • the "From" name when sending messages to a chat client.

Constants are available to all integrations within a communication plan, and are included when exporting and importing a plan.

For more information about referencing a constant in the transformation script, refer to the Integration Builder scripting reference.
