Skript-Expression für Article-Language: Enter the index that contains the language to be used. If you want to store several languages in one index, separate them with commas!

 If a workflow contains more than 20 indexes, the expression must be job.indexVal("number"), because the "shortcuts" job.index1, job.index2, ... only up to job.index20! Example: The table index has the number 8: CORRECT: job.indexVal(8),FALSE: job.index8!
