As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.
New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.
I found all of this by doing an advanced search. Please see upper right-hand corner of this page:
General rules for supplying values for variables:
The lengths of values stored in Dialogue Manager (amper) variables vary by context:
When used with the commands -READ, -TYPE, and WRITE, the maximum length of a variable is approximately 32,000 characters (32K).
When used with other Dialogue Manager commands or the EX command, a variable value cannot exceed 4,096 character (4K).
The maximum number of amper variables available in a procedure is 1024, of which approximately 40 are reserved for use by FOCUS. This includes all local, global, system, statistical, special, and index variables.
