Use the

    process
    . If not specified, the Name is displayed.

  • Required
    : Check if a value must be set for this parameter.
  • Description
    : Enter a description of the parameter.

If the parameter is only used when constructing another parameter and does not need to be passed to the service, uncheck this field. For example, the service might expect a date to be in RFC 1123 format but you want the process that calls it to pass in the Process Designer's normal format, an XSD date.
