global variables

Hie. Just wondering how I can make a global state that is accessible across different flows / scripts. I cannot use variables or resources for this particular case because I need the variable to be accessible and modified by multiple users in different sessionsconcurrently.

Resources seem to be shared amongst all the users. We want a variable that is unique to a session i.e changes made to this resource by the user are unique only to that user and that session We found a work around using the state variables. this is the code _ // access a global state store if (!state.foo) { state.foo = 0 } state. foo = flowA.result return state. foo __ in this case, is state.foo unique to each session/user?

There are states that are "server side" and are tied to a particular script/flow and there is the state that you used that's a client side state that you can change and the UI will react to it. Reloading the browser tab resets it and it's completely client side.

perfect for the use case then. Closing / reloading the browser marks the restart of a session. We are only concerned with the state being unique to a user and session. 😄
