When specifying an Actuator in a Rule that invokes a Custom Action, there is only support for integer or decimal Variable parameters. Is it possible to include string Variables, as well?
Here's an example using a Thermostat, but doesn't seem specific to Actuator type. A number parameter type shows an option for a "Variable integer value":
When specifying a string:
You can already do this. Type
%variableName% as the text, where
variableName is the name of your variable. You can do this as either your entire text or as part of your text; the value will be substituted wherever
%variableName% appears. This trick works in most places that accept string input, and the UI calls out many of these (e.g., on the "Send/speak a notification" screen) but apparently not this one.
I totally forgot about that. I was used to seeing the switch for vars. Thanks for the reminder! I just tested building Telnet commands for a SmartBridge Pro and it works as expected.
