How to manually send a value to a synthetic variable?

Hello, I am trying to send a single value to a synthetic variable (I need to manually adjust some metrics). I tried the Manual entry widget, but it didn’t seem to work (and I found some stuff on the forum which says this is not allowed for synthetic variables).

What is the best way to upload/send some data into a synthetic variable without writing it into the code itself? I am looking for a quick and elegant method.

Hello dear user,

I hope this message finds you well.

Presently, the sole method available for uploading a synthetic variable is by incorporating it into the code, based on a raw variable. This approach aligns with our typical procedure for handling synthetic variables.


Thank you! I assume I can still send a value via API to a synthethic variable?


No, that is not possible, you can only send a value via API to raw variables.
