  • context.workflow.last.editor.name Name of the person who edited the workflow last (on last save).
  • context.workflow.creation.date Date when the workflow was saved the first time.
  • context.workflow.last.time.modified Date when workflow was saved last.
  • context.job.id the job's ID when run on server, otherwise will be empty.
