You can use a global variable or a context variable in component settings.

Warning: In database output components, when parallel execution is enabled, it is not possible to use global variables to retrieve the return values in a subJob.

Procedure

  1. In the relevant Component view, place your mouse in the field you want to parameterize and press Ctrl+Space to display a full list of all the global variables and those context variables defined in or applied to your Job or Route.
    The list grows along with new user-defined variables (context variables).
  2. Double-click the variable of your choice to fill it in the field.
