How do I pass a parameter/constant in a workflow?
You can use a workflow constant to pass a parameter. Click on the Workflow - Configuration - Workflow tab. Click the + button to add a new User type constant, and give your constant a name and value!
It is quite common to hardcode values (‘constants’) in workflows using any of the following ways:
Text input tool
Variables within formula tool
Hardcode the values within formula/any other transformation tools
If the values are hardcoded within tools, especially in very large or complex workflows, maintenance can be difficult. The ‘constants’ property allows us to define all static variables in one place, so that they are accessible throughout the entire workflow.
