Creating a Parameter

Creating a Parameter

Create parameters in a project if you want to create parameters that you can use in a single project.
  1. Click
    Projects
    and open the required project.
  2. Click
    Parameters
    to view the
    Parameters
    tab.
  3. Click the
    Add
    button to open the
    Add Parameter
    window.
  4. Enter a name and optional description.
  5. Select the parameter type from the list.
    You can create criteria, connection, and owner parameters.
  6. The parameter name is generated in the required convention based on the name you enter.
    The naming convention depends on the parameter type.
    • Criteria parameters begin with '$$'.
    • Connection parameters begin with '$DBConnection'.
    • Owner parameters begin with '$Param'.
  7. Select the data type.
    You can create a parameter with String, Numeric, or Date data types.
  8. If you choose the Date data type, enter an expression to define how a function uses the parameter.
    For example,
    TO_DATE($$CRIT1,'MM-DD-YYYY')
    where $$CRIT1 is the parameter name.
  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
    to create the parameter.
