    Folks.
    How can I get an environment variable from a Linux server and go to the command line, to be recognized, in WorkLoad DE, as shown in the appendix.
    Thank you!

    Hi,

    You can set OS envvar value and name back to DE is by setting SETVAR in CLI. Here is an example: 

     

    OS_VAR=/tmp/`date +%y_%m_%d_%a` 

    cli de_server.example.com 7500 USER1 my_password 'SETVAR name('VAR09') value("'$OS_VAR'")' 

    First set the OS variable, then you use the the CLI and connect to DE server with a valid user. Pass the variable name and the value to the DE global variable (VAR09).

    Note: CLI is installed with the DE, it is in <install_dir>/bin.  You can install stand-alone CLI in other servers as well.  It is the same as the CLI in Desktop client.
