Additional Information:


To support the new feature in ENH341650 (Would like to have "user variables" during package create), a new field was added to the Plugin Configuration page. The new field is called "User Variables". This is a comma-separated list of user variables which should be available to the user during the creation process. The format for this field is:

ZMF_Variable1_Name:Display Name,ZMF_Variable2_Name:Display Name


If no Display Name is given, the ZMF Variable name will be displayed to the user during creation.

Supported ZMF Variable Names include names such as UserVarLen101/USR0101/IXP$0101 (not case sensitive)

Display Names can contain spaces but not commas or colons.
