Server variables are used for the dynamic change of values in prompts.
For example :
I have created a server variable in RPD named CURRENT DAY for Date column, so when end user will use this server variable for date column in prompts, then the date value will change dynamically.
Repository variables are used for the dynamic change of values in Reports. Repository variables are created at RPD level.
Suppose i have created a RPD variable named “CURRENT_MONTH_OBIA”, and while making report user need to use this RPD variable in the month column, which leads to dynamic change of month value.
If the current month is April, then it will show April but after completion of this month, it will dynamically change the month value to MAY which is now the current month.
