In a rule I have 2 actions, the first one provides a variable (my_var_name). But in the second action this var is not shown as available.



I can't figure out what the problem is.


I was having this problem with a different module with Rules. I believe the data types are conflicting. node:author:name is a string, while the value have calculated is an integer, a decimal or a float.

My Problem:

User Field - Voting Currency (set as integer)


  • Vote was cast on entity


  • Query database for the value of the vote cast
  • Calculate the value to add/subtract from the Voting Currency field
  • Set the new value of Voting Currency field.

I discovered the vote was a decimal data type. I removed the Voting Currency integer field with a Voting Currency decimal field and everything worked!
