Variables in TIBCO Scribe®

This session ran on June 27, 2019. Please see the resources section to view a recording of the workshop and download the materials (slides, sample maps, test data, etc.).


In this workshop, you'll discover how to use variables in TCI Scribe. We'll review the underlying architecture of the iPaaS and how a connector can be coded to extend functionality. Topics will include: using entities and operations for storing key / value pairs, understanding variable scope, and tips and tricks. Additionally, you'll have an opportunity to work through some real world examples.

This is a fast paced workshop covering a lot of ground, so we'll make a recording available after it's finished.
