Create a Job Parameter

Create a job parameter within a job step. You can use the job parameter only for step parameters that have the same type as the parameter for which you originally set the job parameter. For example, if you create a job parameter for a step parameter that requires a Boolean true or false value, you can't use that job parameter to specify a value that requires a text string entry.

  1. Create a job step or select an existing one.
  2. Click the field that you want to create a parameter for.
  3. Click Job Parameters.
  4. Click Add Job Parameter.
  5. Enter a unique name for the parameter.
  6. Enter a value for the parameter.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Click Assign.
  9. To use the parameter in another job step:
    1. Click the field that you want to use the parameter for.
    2. Click Job Parameters
    3. Select the parameter to use.
    4. Click Assign.
