I would like to define and use custom variables as explaining in https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#Declaring_and_Using_Variables

Declaration is easy, right mouse click, New Child -> Variable

<setupTask
xsi:type="setup:VariableTask"
id="test"
name="test"
label="Testing">
<description>test</description>
</setupTask>

But if I DnD the setup file to the Oomph installer second page, I do not see this new variable. See screenshot.

What do I do wrong?

Best regards, Lars

Without the bigger context I would say you do nothing wrong. You should just not expect a variable that is not used anywhere to be prompted by the installer. Use it in some other task's attribute(s) and you should see it on the Variables page.

Sounds reasonable. :-) Will try this next week, thanks.
