Working with variables

A variable is a key-value pair that contains information that you can reference in your CodeCatalyst workflow.

There are two types of variable that you can use in a workflow:

  • User-defined variables – These are key-value pairs that you define.

  • Predefined variables – These are key-value pairs that are emitted by a workflow automatically. There is no need for you to define them.


CodeCatalyst also supports GitHub output parameters, which behave like variables and can be referenced in other actions. For more information, see Working with GitHub Actions output parameters.
