    Is there a way to pass a parameter from Application Manager to a shell script?  I see that you can choose awsqlp for a parameter to pass to an sql script but I need this to work for a .shl script.

    You can pass prompts similarly to what you do for sql prompts depending on how you define the program type in Applications Manager.  Also, you can user the appworx getvar command to get the value of a subvar.

    Thanks, Scott.  I had the same question and I'll read up in the getvar command.

    Hi Shelley,

    How did you pass the parameters? I'm in a similar situation. I need to pass a parameter from my process flow to a shell script. Currently the parameters are being passed into the job using #2 and #3 from the main prompts. When the job runs I'd like to pull the values from #2 and #3 into my shell script. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Ryan​​​​

    if the job definition within AM includes prompts, the values will automatically be supplied at execution time

    within the shell script, you can simply reference the supplied values by position i.e $1, $2
