This article explains how to set environment variables for supported versions of Windows, Mac and Linux.

Click the Environment Variables... button.
Click New to create a new environment variable
or click Edit to modify an existing environment variable.
Info: Depending on whether you want to set the variable for the current user or all users, use the buttons in User variables or in System variables section, respectively. Setting environment variables for all users requires administrator privileges.

In the Variable value field, enter the value for the variable. The value can be a directory path, for example.

- If your shell is a bash or ksh shell, add the following command to the .bashrc or .kshrc file in your home directory:
export VARIABLE=value. Replace VARIABLE with the name of the environment variable and value with the value you want to give it, for example
