Expressions Overview


Expressions can be written to calculate values and define logic throughout your Shibumi solution.

Expressions are constructed of functions, references, operators, and values. Clauses can be combined using conjunction keywords (and, or) and parentheses.

Expression can either be written by typing directly into an expression field or by using our injected expression syntax within specific fields.
