Does IDT support custom, business-layer parameters?

I was hoping to store a custom, parameter that I can reference in dimensions and attributes, via the @VARIABLE function.

I created the SERVER_PORT parameter:

NOTE: I've tried surrounding the value with single quotes ('') and double quotes ("").

Created an attribute that references it:

Unfortunately, this doesn't appear to work, as I'm prompted to supply a value when the attribute is used in a query:

Are custom parameters supported?

    following Variables are supported by @Variable

    BOUSER
    DBUSER
    DOCNAME
    DOCID
    DPNAME
    DPTYPE
    UNVNAME
    UNVID
    PREFERRED_VIEWING_LOCALE

    DOMINANT_PREFERRED_VIEWING_LOCALE

    .....

    also it support User Attributes. so, if you need to use custom variable, then first, you schould define it as user attribute in the User Attribute Management area of the Central Management Console (CMC), then you can use it with @Variable.

    Example:

    defined user attribute "MYSERVER" ----> @Variable('SI_MYSERVER')

    • I don't have the rights to do so.

      I also tried creating a custom property associated with the root, business-layer node:

      but it didn't work with @variable either (same error message).

      By the way, what is the purpose of "custom properties"?
