macro variables can be used in analyses (like chart title, description and axis titles) and in report template file names, but not in report template description field. Please refer to these pages to see where macro-variables can be used:
- List of macro variables - Documentation for BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization 11.0 - BMC Documentation
- Editing chart options for an analysis - Documentation for BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization 11.0 - BMC Documentation
I agree that could be a nice idea to extend the usage of macro-variables also in other fields. Please feel free to open an Idea on this community describing your scenarios.
