Creating a Parameter

Create parameters in a project if you want to use parameters in a plan.
  1. Click
    Projects
    and open the required project.
  2. Click
    Parameters
    to view the
    Parameters
    tab.
  3. Click the
    Edit
    button to open the
    Configure Parameters
    window.
  4. Click
    Add
    .
  5. Enter a name and optional description for the parameter.
    The naming convention depends on the parameter type.
    • Criteria parameters must begin with '$$'.
    • Connection parameters must begin with '$DBConnection'.
    • Owner parameters must begin with '$Param'.
  6. Select the parameter type from the list.
    You can create criteria, connection, and owner parameters.
  7. Select the data type.
    You can create a parameter with String, Numeric, or Date data types.
  8. If you choose the Date data type, enter an expression to define how a function uses the parameter.
    For example,
    TO_DATE($$CRIT1,'MM-DD-YYYY')
    where $$CRIT1 is the name of the parameter.
  9. Enter a default value. Required if you do not choose to allow override.
  10. Choose to allow override of the default value.
    You cannot change the parameter value when you run the workflow if you do not allow override.
  11. Click
    OK
    and then click
    Save
    to create the parameter.
