Setting the Server Variable dialog box options

Setting the Server Variable dialog box options

This dialog box defines a ColdFusion server variable.

To define a ColdFusion server variable:

  1. In the Name text box, enter the name of the server variable.

    For example, if you want to access information stored in the Server.Trademark variable, enter Trademark as the variable name.

    Server variables can be accessed by all clients accessing the server, as well as by any applications running on the server. The variables persist until the server is stopped. They are created with the ColdFusion CFSET or CFPARAM tags (with CFLOCK).

    Server variables are either user-defined or built-in. The following table lists the built-in ColdFusion server variables:




    ColdFusion product name.


    ColdFusion version number.


    ColdFusion edition (Enterprise, Professional)


    Serial number of currently installed version of ColdFusion


    Name of operating system running on the server (Windows NT, Windows 2000, Linux)


    Additional information about installed operating system (service packs, updates)


    Version of installed operating system.


    Build number of installed operating system.

  2. Click OK.

    The ColdFusion server variable appears in the Bindings panel.
