Viewing Parameters

Parameters are input/output definitions used within scripts in Civic Platform. This function allows you to view data parameters. Accela staff defines and specifies these parameters. For more information on how Civic Platform handles parameters and scripts, see the Accela Civic Platform Scripting Guide.
