Default value with release scope parameters

  • 1.  Default value with release scope parameters

    Posted 02-19-2018 01:27 PM

    Hi,

     

    I can't make the default values appears in the manifest files. 

     

    If I define a release scope parameter and assign a default value to it, RA never picks it up.

     

    Is this a bug ? Or does it work as intended ? Or I'm doing something wrong ?

     

    Regards,

    GGV

    Hi,

     

    I think Release Parameter is used when we need to set different value between deployment plans. So, I suppose this behavior is per product design.

    If you want to set fixed value, you can use Internal parameter.

     

    Thanks

    Hi 

     

    Do you mean that you expect that the default value you set during the process design will be showed in the generated 

    manifest file ? 

     

    The manifest file will only show the parameter which can be set in the manifest file not the default value .

    Hi Dirk,

     

    Yes this is exactly what I'm looking for.

     

    For exemple I have this process. And I would like to be able to preconfigure the paramèters with default value. I don't think it would be that hard to pull the default value setuped in the parameters and use them in the XML.

                <abandon templateProperty="false">""</abandon>

    Hi,

     

    I don't think it would be hard to do but it is not in the current code , also i am not sure if it will impact any 

    other things when we add it.

     

    The only thing i can advice is to raise a idea for it , so product management can consider it for a future version 

     

    Regards 

    Dirk
