SYS_GetEnv returns the value that the environment variable had when Silk Test Classic started, or the value assigned by a previous call to SYS_SetEnv.

SYS_GetEnv is executed by the Agent process, not the Silk Test Classic process. To affect the host process, use the function with the hHost notation or machine handle operator. For more information about the machine handle operator and hHost, see Machine handle operator.
