Manage Environment variables
You can manage environment variables from the Administration workspace. For this, in the sub-menu "Entities", click on the anchor .
Environment variables are used for running automated tests with Squash Orchestrator.
With them, it is possible to indicate for example the credentials, the environment type (prod/preprod), the git branch or the browser used to launch the tests.
For more information on environment variables use cases, visit the Squash Orchestrator documentation

Add, Modify, and Delete environment variables
From the table to manage environment variables, you can add or delete one or multiple environment variables.
When creating an environment variable, you must complete:
- the "Name" field (can only contain letters, numbers and underscores)
- the Type of environment variable (by default, "Plain text" is selected)
- for dropdown lists, the name of the items (can only contain letters, numbers, -, _, . and spaces)
By clicking on an environment variable's row number (#) or its name, the custom field's consultation page appears for you to edit if needed.
