Data source environment variables store parameters that are required by one or more actions in the connector and these parameters often vary depending on the action. For example, a SharePoint Online connection does not store any information about sites, lists, or document libraries.
Environment variables have been a powerful tool for a variety of ALM scenarios as they allow you to externalize input parameters from the components that use them. They’re now much simpler to work with and can store parameters required to connect to data using Data Source Environment Variables. This allows you to change the data sources (as well as other types of parameters) when migrating solutions to other environments.
