The goal of the Variables fields in that REST call to start the test is to override existing constant variables like you can do in command line. You can't use other type of variables since it's not the purpose of that functionality.

I do not understand your goal with your type list variable. Your list variable should be created on your project so what is your goal here?

the neoload project i will run it from a vm, so i m trying to run a group of users each time to test the performance,
so i need to pass my list type variable in the api if i am going to add another user.
I already have a list variable in my project but in case I am going to make a modification on the list, I am trying to find a solution to pass this variable with api, that my goal, because for the case of modification I will manually change the project and re import it in vm and that's not the right solution

As you understood the purpose of that variables parameter is not to modify a list type variable but a constant variable.

What about using a File variable instead of a list? That way you could only modify the file used by your variables without opening your project.
