Quick Help

References To Objects
[[ .. ${{...}}]] are refences to values of other objects.
Unresolved variable or object references
Oval definitions use objects referenced by other objects to define complex data structures. Sometimes you may see that a link to object/variable details page instead of the actual value of an object or variable is displayed. This is caused by the recursion depth limit used to prevent excessive web server resource usage.
