this is probably really basic but I am under the gun in a deliverable. I want to pass a parameter from launcher to a project. How do I configure the parameter in the project?
It is a counter but if I give it a constant value then that overrides the launcher parameter sent.
Just trying to use one project concurrently passing it a counter to pick up files that number in the counter. Help Dmitry! Thanks
No special configuration of the project parameter needed. Just create a project parameter with the same name and it will be overridden by a Launcher task if the task has a task parameter with the same name.
In other words, whatever parameter value you set up in the Launcher task will override the default value in the project. Rules:
The project parameter must not be a calculated one. Calculated parameters can’t be overridden, even if your calculated parameter has only one constant.
Both the project, and the Launcher task must have a parameter with the same name. If the Launcher task doesn’t override a project’s parameter, then the default value of the project parameter will be used. The default value is the parameter value saved in the project.
The task parameter name in the Launcher must be exactly the same as the project parameter name. The names are case-sensitive.
I had a project parameter of Counter as a constant with a default value of 1. Then I created a parameter from the launcher which passes a value but it seemed to keep running the first set over and over.
