Parameters are data items referring to one value. No domain-unit needs to be configured.


  • Start with the keyword: parameter
  • Configure between the less than (<) and greater than (>) characters, it’s values-unit.
  • Next configure the name of the parameter.
  • The parameter value is often configured as expression (see first example) but also other properties can be configured (see second example).
  • To finalize the definition of an item, configure a semicolon (;) character.
