Updates Script Parameters

Hi

We are using script parameters to manage a number of ids and all works well in Admin -> End User Management area. Using the script parameters frequently and want to download the script with lastest script parameter values. But when i go to download the script from the Script Repository, we only have the first value of the script parameter which was used while uploading the script.

How do we download a script with latest updated script parameters to edit it?

BSM 9.25 IP1 / BPM 9.22 / VUGEN 11.51

Hi,

Parameters work per assignment/application so they are not updated at Script/repository level.

Agreed, but Script Parameters are created in the VuGen Scripts, you cannot create them in the application level or in BSM Admin area.  When we develop scripts we can create these script parameters in VuGen and can assign values to them. In the BSMAdmin area we can have ability to update them.

But there does not seem to be an option to download these updated parameters values if you need to use these updated script parameters. If you downlaod the script, you will end up with the original script parameter value you uploaded.

correct, and the reason is that same script can be used multiple times, by different Apps or BTFs, with different script parameters values...

So does it mean if we do not use the script multiple times and use it only for the one designated BTF will we be able to change the scritp parameters across all instances ? If not is there a set ofsteps where we need to go and update this?

Hi pxp,

no, unfortunately not.

No matter what you do: you can never export a script from BSM in a way that it contains the current parameters, no matter what the configuration of your BAs or BTFs is.

As mentioned,
> Parameters work per assignment/application so they are not updated at Script/repository level.

and you already stated
> but Script Parameters are created in the VuGen Scripts, you cannot create them in the application level or in BSM Admin area.

> In the BSMAdmin area we can have ability to update them.

BSM simply takes the script as it has been stored in the CRS originally, which also means with the original parameters as stored in the VuGen code.
You might wanna open an ER to request that during script export BSM replaces the original parameters of the script with the current ones, as updated within BSM.

Greetings
