Global Variables & Order of Execution

@bravenel can prolly answer this one right off the top of his head...where do setting global variables fall in the order of execution for rule machine? For example, if I set a global variable and then send that global variable in a HTTP message, will that happen in the right order or do i have to put the send message in an action triggered from the first rule? By the way, LOVING the global variables. Thank you!!!

"First as of now" was his response when I asked this question a couple of weeks ago.

Meaning it happens before everything else? Well, that makes things a lot simpler. Thanks!


Edit; Yes, it's the first action executed
