When designing a workflow, often Strings are needed that differ between the development and the production environment. As an example you can see the sender address in a mail event.
In this case we can create a “Field”. This field is a kind of variable. To create a new field, in the Object Browser right click and select “Add New Field…”.
In the “Add New Field” dialog, it’s important to select “Miscellaneous Field” as the Item Type.
When the new field is added by clicking <OK>, we can see the new field in the Fields section in the Object Browser.
After deploying the workflow, we can see these fields in the Strings section of the Management Console.
