IOT linking the sensor data to the thing

I have a simple sketch that reads accelerometer data and what to display it on a dashboard.
I have included my code below.

How do i link or copy (accel.acceleration.x) to acc1 to display to my dashboard?
I cant simply make acc1 = acceleration!

Any help would be appreciated

  Arduino IoT Cloud Variables description

  The following variables are automatically generated and updated when changes are made to the Thing

  float yax;
  int accel;
  int acc1;

  Variables which are marked as READ/WRITE in the Cloud Thing will also have functions
  which are called when their values are changed from the Dashboard.
  These functions are generated with the Thing and added at the end of this sketch.
