  3. Select New Configuration.
  4. Enter the configuration element name.
  5. Select the Variables tab.
  6. To create a local variable, click New.
    1. Enter the variable name.
    2. Select the variable type.
      Note: To create an array of configuration variables, select the Array check box.
    3. (Optional) Enter a value for the configuration variable.
    4. Click Save.
  7. To finish creating a configuration element, click Save.
