Hi All,

I have been debating the use of global variables in DTM but wanted some concrete answers.

Questions:

  1. Should DTM admins use the global variables section to set variables that will be used globally versus just adding it as a page load rule. What are some pros and cons. Is there page load savings or merely organizational?
  2. What exactly does the server area used for and do? Does it have a use case?
  3. Dynamic variable prefix, what exactly is this doing and how to setup and again what are some use cases for using this field?

Hi Gigazelle,

Thank you for the perfect answer to my question about the server field. I agree eVars are the way to go

just want to make sure we are not missing any wasted opportunities in these areas.
