GUI-set and other "auto-set" parameters

Many parameters are automatically set by an application to record entries in the graphical user interface (GUI) of an application. That is, an application writes the parameter value to the Task Parameters when an administrator or user makes an entry in the GUI. Many other parameters are auto-set by the Setup program that installs the Quest software, or are auto-set by a program for internal controls.

CAUTION: These auto-set parameters are important to application performance, and changes to auto-set values can cause the associated applications to perform erratically. Quest strongly recommends that you do not manually edit the auto-set parameters except at the direction of Quest Support staff, or if explicitly directed in the application notes in this document.

Transient "scratch" parameters

Many parameters are internal transient parameters, used by programs as temporary repositories for “scratch” data to pass information to another program, or from one subroutine to another. Any manual manipulation of these parameters is meaningless and will have no affect on the program or data, since any preexisting values are overwritten by the program as soon as it runs. All transient “scratch” parameters are clearly identified as such in this document.

Parameter defaults

The default value of a required parameter is the value that was set when the software was originally installed by the Setup utility—before the associated program or anyone has had a chance to edit the file. The default value of an optional parameter is the value that prevails if the parameter does not appear within the INI file.

Parameter value data types

For any given parameter, the parameter value will be meaningful only if it conforms to the parameter’s particular data type. Every parameter is one of these five data types:

String: An alphanumeric string.
Integer: A non-decimal numeric value.
Boolean: A single-digit value, 1 or 0, to specify whether a particular feature or function is to be enabled or disabled, or whether a particular operating condition is true or false. These values are specified by a single-digit of 1 (on, yes, or true) or 0 (off, no, or false).
Date: A date, formed by eight digits with two slash characters, in the form: mm/dd/yyyy.
Keyword: An alphanumeric string that matches one of a finite set of valid keyword strings defined for the particular parameter.
