Using variables in properties

Apologies if I missed this in documentation, but I would like to use variables in connection properties. I looked at "custom properties" but it wasn't clear how to use them after they are set or the context in which they are used. 

For example, at the folder level, I would like to set something like:


and then in the connections for that folder, I could call it within connection properties.

For example for hostname I could put: 



Is there a way to do this? 


The only way I can think of is to build a Dynamic Folder Script that would build out the host list using the token value. 

You could likely put the list of host1, host2, host3 into another Custom Property (though I don't know the size limit) and even put the "my" in a third property. 

The Dynamic script is then just a loop over the host list that concatenates the rJSON output.

Hi Matt,

you can set a Custom Property TextField in your connections folder, like so:

Afterwards, open the properties of your (RDP) connection and enable the "Use Custom Properties from parent folder" setting:

This allows you to access these in the Computer Name Field via "$CustomProperty.Hostname$":

I hope this helps!
