Default Environment Variables

When you create a resource with this integration, and use it as an IN or OUT for a job that can execute user defined scripts, a set of environment variables are configured by the platform that may be useful to set the context before user defined scripts execute as part of the job. These variables are available when a resource with this integration type is used.
