Environment Variables offers an easy and convenient way to manage environment variables. It also allows you to create profiles for managing a set of variables together. Profile variables have precedence over User and System variables. Applying the profile adds variables to User environment variables in the background. When a profile is applied, if there is an existing User variable with the same name, a backup variable is created in User variables which will be reverted to the original value on profile un-apply.
Applied variables list shows the current state of the environment, respecting the order of evaluation of environment variables (Profile -> User -> System). Evaluated Path variable value is shown at the top of the list.
To edit or remove a variable (profile, User or System), select the more options button (•••) on the desired variable:
To add a new profile:
- Select New profile
- Enter profile name
- Set Enabled toggle to On to apply the profile right after creation
- Select Add variable to add variables to profile (either new variable or existing User/System variables).
- Select Save
To edit or remove a profile, select the more options button (•••) on the desired profile.
