To bring values back to DE, you will have to use CLI and set it in global variable.


You can get OS envvar back to DE by setting SETVAR in cli and the name of global variable.

First set the OS variable, which can be anything.

OS_VAR=/tmp/`date +%y_%m_%d_%a`

Then use the the CLI and connect to DE server with a valid user, pass the variable name and the value, which can regex.

cli 7500 DE_USER password 'SETVAR name('VAR09') value("'$OS_VAR'")'
