    I haven't tried it, but you could put your key in the device string of a virtual device and then concatenate it to the Get command.
    If the RefID of the device is 1234 then the immediate script command would look like this:
    &hs.GetURL("" & hs.DeviceString(1234),"/",TRUE,80)

    Adding a variable to a script, in an event

    I have several scripts in events that send url to webhooks in ifttt. I read trough and searched though the forum and cant seem to find an answer to this.

    My scripts are just like this:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	hs script.png Views:	0 Size:	41.7 KB ID:	1369631

    example script:

    in this script is the key used for my webhoooks account. In my example script say the key is: 'ThisIsMyKey' Every now and then I change that key (usually by mistake). When I change that key I have to re-enter it in every script that I use it in, 20+. I have tried to creating a global variable (string) and inserting the variable name, but I cant seem to find a format that works.

    Is there a simple way to do this? Something like this?

    &hs.GetURL("{GLOAL VARIABLE KEY}","/",TRUE,80)

    I want to stay simple, and not adding program calls or anything like that. Hopefully I am missing something very obvious and simple

    Thanks for any help!
