What does one need to create an automation typed variable?

I’m having this problem, that I cannot create an automation variable. The error message goes on and says that Automation is not an option. Does anyone know what I need in order to create them?

As far as I remember you need a developer license to do so (Granule 7300 Solution Developer) I am not sure Granule 7200 Application Builder is sufficient.

Thanks a lot Walter. It was in fact a license problem. Though I’m not sure it is for 7300 or 7200 Granules since I already had those in the previous license. Anyway the problem is fixed and that counts the most.
