SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager uses a variable system that is similar to that of SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor. Variables always begin with a dollar sign and a curly brace (${), and always end with a curly brace (}).

Variables can be used in most custom properties. They can also be used in any of the user editable system properties.

Variables can also be nested and recursive. That is, a single variable can refer to a node property that contains more variables that then contain even more variables. The following example demonstrates nested variables:

Node Property Value of Property

Location

Rack ${Rack} on ${Floor} floor of ${Building} - ${SysLocation}

Building

Building C

SysLocation

Data Center A

Rack

15

Floor

Second

The database value of Location is Rack ${Rack} on ${Floor} floor of ${Building} - ${SysLocation}. The displayed value of Location is Rack 15 on Second floor of Building C - Data Center A.
