The figure below shows the basic attribute configuration interface:

  • Node Name: It is the node name that you enter when creating a workflow node. To modify a node name, right-click the node on the directory tree and choose Rename from the short-cut menu.
  • Node ID: It is the unique node ID generated when a task is submitted, and cannot be modified.
  • Node ID: It is the unique node ID generated when a task is submitted, and cannot be modified.
  • Owner: It is the node owner. The owner of a newly created node is the current logon user by default. To modify the owner, click the input box, and enter the owner name or directly select another user.
    Note When you select another user, the user must be a member of the current project.
  • Description: It is generally used to describe the business and purpose of the node.
  • Parameter: It is used to assign value to a variable in the code during task scheduling.

    For example, when a variable "pt=${datetime}" is used to indicate the time in the code, you can assign a value to the variable here. The assigned value can use the scheduling built-in time parameter "datetime=$bizdate".

  • Resource Group: It specifies the resource group for running the node.

Parameter value assignment formats for various node types

  • ODPS SQL, ODPSPL, ODPS MR, and XLIB types: Variable name 1=Parameter 1 Variable name 2=Parameter 2..., Multiple parameters are separated by spaces.
  • SHELL type: Parameter 1 Parameter 2..., Multiple parameters are separated by spaces.

Some frequently-used time parameters are provided as built-in scheduling parameters. For more information about these parameters, see Parameter configuration.
