Parameter Input Settings

For each parameter, various input settings can be configured on the parameter's Input tab. This allows you to adjust Modules, Projects and Run Books to the specific needs of a situation before you use them.

Input new value

  • When importing Building Block: Request input for a parameter when you import a Building Block that includes one or more parameters. This option is cleared by default.
    • Show previous value: Show the default value of the parameter, or the value that was used previously. This option is selected by default.
  • When scheduling Job: Request input for a parameter when you schedule a Job that includes one or more parameters. This option is selected by default. When automatically creating parameters the option will be cleared by default.
    • Show previous value: Show the default value of the parameter, or the value that was used previously. This option is selected by default.
    • Erase previous value when rescheduling: Erase parameter values when a Job in which the parameter is used is rescheduled, and prompt for new values. This option increases security when used for example in Password and Credentials parameters.

Options

  • Hide parameter if parameter is not used directly: Hide the parameter at the input moment if it is not used in any field. This option is selected by default.
  • Request input confirmation: Request confirmation of the provided parameter value after the input moment.
  • Parameter value is required: Make it mandatory to provide a parameter value at the input moment.
  • Use input mask: Create a restrictive field for text entry. The values that you can enter at the input moment of the parameter are restricted to the format of the specified mask. See Parameter Input Mask.

Overruling input settings

  • The input settings of a Module parameter are overruled if it is linked to a Project parameter. See Project parameters.
  • The input settings of a Project parameter are overruled if it is linked to a Run Book parameter. See Run Book parameters.
  • Input settings are not evaluated if a parameter's value is imported from a CSV file during Job scheduling. See Using parameter values from a CSV file.

To change the input settings of several parameters at once, select them (on the Module parameters, Project parameters or Run Book parameters tab), right-click and choose Edit. Select the relevant input settings and click Edit.
