- Click Yes. The selected System Variable will be deleted from Interact and a completion message will be displayed.
Handling Conflicts Caused by Deletion
Interact uses a special mechanism to handle conflicts in the Web Designer that may be caused by deleting a System Variable that is being used by a Flow.
Should such a situation arise, the Web Designer will automatically generate a replacement User Variable of the same type and value in any affected Flows.
This mechanism means that the deleted System Variable will still be available (as a User Variable) to any Flow that used it previously.
Because of this mechanism, no conflict warnings will be generated when deleting a System Variable that is currently used in a Flow.
