Built-In Macros

DivePort provides a set of built-in macros (also referred to as portal variables) that represent commonly required values.

  • Most are global, available from every page in a portal.
  • Some are limited, available only in specific portlet instances.
  • Some require a Measure Factory license.

Built-in macros use the format:


The macro name must be in all capital letters, enclosed in parentheses, and preceded by a dollar sign. Some built-in macros require parameters to be included within the parentheses.

IMPORTANT: Parameters to macros that contain spaces must be enclosed in quotation marks.
