HiI created a template for "external application".
When I create a new object based on that template these variables are gone / empty.
Is this as expected?
these replacement tokens are only resolved when a template is used to connect using a "context-connection". When you create a new connection based on a template,, I recommend using the credentials page in the template connection to pre-configure username and password.
Let me know if this helps.
-maxgui -system=SID -client=000 -user=$EffectiveUsername$ -pw=$EffectivePassword$ -language=E
Just in case anybody searches for this kind of information - or maybe you have another proposal?
system, client, user and pw are variables you have to set when creating a new conenction based on a template/the copy-source connection
maybe I misunderstood. If you are creating those connections using a template in context of an existing connection (with configured credentials), it should resolve to the actual credentials.
To discuss this further I suggest you open a ticket here:
Include screenshots or a short video which shows your configuration and the workflow.
