Variable Simulator

When deploying to our production environment the outcome of transformations and variable replacement is always a bit of a gamble. I would like to be able to see what the outcome of these transformations are before I actually deploy especially if I had to make changes to the variables.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Hi Timo,

The only way is by running “tentacle.exe run-script” which you can read about more here:

You could use this to pass variables like:

tentacle.exe run-script test.ps1 -v "Var1=ABC#{Var2}" -v "Var2=DEF"

Where test.ps1 is simply:

write-host $var1

We don’t currently have anything more advanced to test them other than as you say, doing a deployment.
