Using custom variables

After you define custom variables, you must specify the appropriate values when you create or update a user account. You can then use custom variables in the same way as default variables. You specify the variable name when you create profiles or customize compliance notifications and activation email messages.
Example: Using the same VPN profile for several users who have their own VPN passwords
In the following example, "VPN password" is the label that you specified for the %custom_pswd1% variable and it is used as a field name in the Custom variables section when you update a user account.
