Using Variable Connector In TIBCO Cloud Integration

Posted On July 10, 2018 by Admin Posted in  Tagged in , ,


The Variable Connector, created as part of the Scribe Labs initiative, adds a much-needed feature to TIBCO Cloud Integration i.e. to store and retrieve variables in a Scribe Map. However, keep in mind, these variables cannot be shared between maps or solutions.

Steps For Installation:

To begin using the connector, install it from the Scribe Marketplace.

  1. Go to Marketplace.
  2. Search for ‘Variables’.
  3. Select Scribe Labs – Variables and click ‘Install’.
  4. The Connector will install for your Organisation in a few minutes.

Steps To Create A Variable Connection:

  1. From the ‘More’ dropdown menu, click on ‘Connections’.
  2. Click on the plus sign (+) on the right of the page to add a new connection.
  3. Select your Connector Type, input the name of the variable connection and select the Agent.
  4. Click OK.

Steps to use in a Map:

  1. Add the variable connection to your map.
  2. To store a value in the variable, select the Upsert block.
  3. In the General Tab, select the data type of the variable you want to store from the Entity dropdown menu.
  4. In the Fields Tab, input the name of the variable in the ‘name’ field and the data you want to store in the variable in the ‘val’ field.
  5. Click OK.
  6. To retrieve a variable, use the Lookup Block from the Variable Connection.
  7. Select the data type of the variable in the Entity tab.
  8. In the Lookup Criteria tab, lookup the name of the variable you had set.
  9. Select the ‘val’ field in the Field List tab.
  10. Click OK.
  11. You can now use the data stored in the ‘val’ field of the variable in your map.


I hope this helps understand the usage of the Variable Connector in TIBCO Cloud Integration. This feature is very useful when one needs the functionality of a variable while using TIBCO Cloud Integration.
