Output parameters

Output parameters from one Automation Manager policy can be re-used multiple times across policies. These "global" Output Parameters have the following properties:

  • They are embedded in an existing policy.
  • They are part of the policy itself.
  • They can be reused in other policies.
  • They are displayed below the standard output area when you run a new or updated policy.

Using Output Parameters is targeted for the advanced Automation Manager policy builder.

Use the Run Policy Automation Object to locate and identify the Global Output Parameters that you want to use from an existing policy.
