Assign a variable in the Rate Chain

When setting up the Rate Object Evaluation in the Lines module, you will need to assign a variable in the Rate Chain. After assigning a variable, you will need to name the variable.

When naming a variable, remember the following:

  • Use camel case:
    • Make the first word lowercase.
    • Capitalize each word after the first.
    • Don’t add a space between words.
  • Don’t use limit and premium as variable names, since they’re the names of specific functions. However, variable names can contain the words limit or premium such as runningLimit or premiumCalculation.
  • Don’t use a number in the variable name.
  • My variable becomes myVariable.
  • This is my variable becomes thisIsMyVariable.
