Pipeline parameters

Pipeline parameters refer to Pipelines that are used for some LiveCompare actions. For example, the Search Test Repository action has a Pipeline parameter, which refers to the Pipeline whose Test Repositories are to be searched.

To set the value of a Pipeline parameter, open the Property Editor and click the field to the right of the parameter's ‘Pipeline’ action property. The Pipeline dialog is displayed in the lower portion of the Workflow Editor, showing the name of the parameter node being edited. Note that the workflow diagram may not be edited while this dialog is displayed.
