  • In tRunjob , go on component tab and :

Select which variable you want to send , you can for example send the Whole context.

“Transmit whole context” is used to transmit all the context variables of a parent job to a child job.

If your parent job has 5 context variables but your child job needs only 3, you don’t transmit “the whole context” but only the 3 interresting variables.


Passing a value from the parent Job to the child Job is a common real world requirement. This article serves as a best practice guide.
