Variable Resolution

Hi RDM Team, I'm not quite sure if it is a bug or if it is working as intended, but RDM behaves a bit odd if Sub Connections and Folder inheritance of variables is used.

-Create a Folder, set to Server, give it a name like "servername" and fill in the Computer Field "$NAME$.domain"
-Inside the folder create a Host Entry with the name "$COMPUTER_HOST_WITHOUT_DOMAIN$" and the host entry "$COMPUTER_HOST$"
-add a Web Browser Sub Connection to the Host connection, name it "web" and fill in the URL "http://$PARENT_HOST$"

Now open the web connection and look at the URL. For me it expands to "http://$NAME$.domain", but as I understand, it should expand to "http://servername.domain".

Is this intended behavior? For sure I could fill in "$COMPUTER_HOST$" in the Sub Connection to make the use case work, but this would introduce direct relations between Sub Connections and the folder where the Parent Connection resides in...

Hi John,

Thanks to your point after a look at the engineer department and a test on my side, the way that you have http://$NAME$.domain is "Normal". Unfortunately we cannot resolve a variable into another variable, otherwise the variable $NAME$ will take the name of your Web Browser entry.
The variable isn't stored somewhere to let us do that step they are resolved when you click on it.

I recommend that you use the $COMPUTER_HOST$ as you test it.

Best Regards,

David Grandolfo
