Unified Variables represent a collection of fields from within your code. It lets you normalize data type names from multiple data sources by combining them into a single parameter.

These variables are the engine behind Unified Filters, an additional feature that provides a comprehensive overview of your systems and applications.

Only account admins can create, edit, and toggle Unified Variables. Account users can view the variables and their fields.
