Passing start-up parameters to a scenario using variables

One of the most popular methods of affecting the behavior of an ODI scenario is to pass in parameter values at execution time. Whether launching a scenario from the GUI, the command line, or from a web service, the use of parameter values is a simple yet effective way of controlling a scenario's activities. In this recipe, we will design a workflow to include a start-up parameter in order to pass in a specific value at execution time.
