  • All z-codes must start with an open square bracket “[” and end in a closing square bracket “]”. e.g. […]
  • Following the open bracket include the name the z-code with no space (e.g. “[product”)
  • There should always be a space after the z-code name and before the parameter (e.g. “[product param…]”)
