    Global Constants -> Process Variables

    The Flex Viking Level 1

      I know that you can set up variables as constants in a process so that you can manipulate the value through AdminUI.  These are per process constants though.  Is there any way to set up constants that are available within a process that are global to the entire LC install?

       

      For example, I may have certain strings that are used in an emails across all processes depending on what LC instance is executing the process.

       

      The way I do it now is to define an XML document that exists in the repository. Each LC instance uses the same XML schema, but the values can differ. I have a process (that can remain identical across all LC instances) that reads this file and assigns the XML values to process variables.

       

      Just curious as to if there was a better way given that Adobe certainly thought about the issue of constants at least on a per process basis.
