Support for variables in configuring content sites

Variables allow you to configure content server access that is specific to the user or group. For example, in Active Directory, you can specify a user’s home directory on a network drive as an attribute. If you include the variable in the URL for the content site, the user's view of the network drive will be their home folder.

Prerequisites for using variables for configuring content sites

Requires LDAP or AD integration.

Supported Content sites for variables

SharePoint (including Office 365)

Network Drives

Cloud Storage

Variables for Box and Dropbox are not supported.
