  2. Select an item.

  3. Under Related Links, go to Variables and click New.

  4. Add a variable with the following values:

    Name: Test
    Type: Container Start
    Select Display Title

  5. Click Submit.

  6. Add another variable to contain and a Container End variable to the item.

  7. Click Try it to test the variable on the UI.

    Note that the expand and collapse widget is not available on the Service Portal.


There are no plans to support this functionality in the baseline functionality of the Service Portal. Build a custom widget to implement this behavior.
