Custom Variables

Custom Variables


Custom Variables are global variables that store static information in your Zoho Recruit system. This allows you to replace certain key values- such as username or brand- in various elements, allowing customers to easily make system-wide changes and personalizations.
Custom variables can also be used to update important organization-specific integration data such as auth tokens, usernames, and passwords, enabling users to add or update their security information in a single step. These account-specific values vary from user to user, so they cannot be entered by the developer during the design process. Custom variables make it easy for the user to enter this information themselves and populate it throughout the system automatically. This delivers a seamless integration experience and gets rid of unnecessary system maintenance.

Create a custom variable   

To set up a custom organization variable
  1. Log in to Zoho Sigma console and click Extensions.
  2. Select the extension you'd like to modify and click Edit Extension.
    You will be navigated to the Zoho Developers console.
  3. Click Recruit Variables in the left pane, then click Create New Variable.
  4. In the Extension Settings page, provide the following details:
    1. Provide a suitable Variable Name.
    2. Choose a Type for the variable.
      This is not required, but you may be prompted to fill in a value when an extension is installed.
  5. Click Save.
Note

The API Name and Field Name must be the same. The system will append a suitable prefix to make it unique. For example: If the Extension Name is Candidate ID, Field Name is Authtoken, and API Name is Authtoken, when the variable is saved, the API name will be set as candidateid.Authtoken.
