Literals

Literals are defined by a name (optional) and a value. The value can be derived from an entry in the Formula editor.

The following shows an example object having four Literals.

{
"lat": 40.12,
"lon": -96.66,
"timezone": "America/Chicago",
"timezone_offset": -18000,
}

Literals cannot have child properties.

Literals are created in the Mapping dashboard by entering a name in the New Property field, selecting Literal and clicking Create.

Name the property then select Literal

A value is then entered in the Formula editor.

Alternately, a mapping from an connected unit's attribute can also provide a value using references.
