Using Parameters in Entity Properties

A parameter represents a value that you can set for an entity property. You can create parameters for entity properties to provide flexibility each time you configure entities.
You can set the values for parameters in the Parameter Management tab. To use the parameters, specify the parameter name in the entity properties.
Use the following format to specify the parameter name in the entity properties:
Enclose the parameter name in the { and }parentheses and prefix with a $.
You can also configure secure parameters for passwords or other secure fields in the entity properties. You can configure secure parameters in the following ways:
  • Set the values for secure parameters in the Secure Parameters tab.
  • Set the value for a secure field in the entity properties, when you add the entity to the data flow.
