Return Variable from subrelease

#1

Hello all,

I’ve recently been tasked with automating our existing scripts with our on-prem install of XLRelease. I’m trying to figure out if using subreleases is going to help me or hurt me.

I have a subrelease that is called from the master release. One of the tasks in that subrelease creates a variable that the master release needs. However, I can’t seem to access it with the variable name that I registered in that subrelease. Is there a way for me to access those variables in the master release that I set in the subrelease?

EDIT

I also tried to use a folder variable, but I couldn’t set it from the output of the task. I kept getting:

you cannot create a variable with a key like folder.*
