About custom tools keywords and filters
The commands and parameters used with a custom tool may include variable information which is supplied by the desktop client at the time the tool is invoked. This can consist of two components, a keyword, which returns some value or name of an object in the desktop client, and optionally, a filter keyword, which specifies some part of this information.
Use the right arrow button next to the fields in the Tools tab to select valid entries and inserts the correct syntax.
A keyword is specified by preceding it with the dollar sign ($) and optionally a filter keyword, and enclosing it in "(" and ")" brackets.
returns the drive portion of the project/stream root directory
returns the path of the project/stream root directory.
If the keyword is a column or set of columns, you specify it by enclosing it in square brackets "[ ]" and separating the column names with commas.
returns the values from the Description and Status columns for each row in an Item view.
The keywords and filter names are case-sensitive (but not column names). If a keyword cannot be evaluated, or is inapplicable at the time the tool is invoked, it evaluates to null (""). Some keywords only apply when a particular view is open in the desktop client. For example, the projectFolder keyword can be evaluated only from a project/stream structure view.
