Configuration parameters are the parameters a user can use to control the behavior of a job. This can be thresholds for alerting, items to ignore, and other types of adjustments that make it easy to create a good fit between a standardized job and a custom database instance setup.
The parameters are written to the dbw_parameters table in the dbwatch_cc (by default) schema/database and the procedure can retrieve this data upon execution and use it in the internal logic.
Parameters can be in the following formats:
Text, Decimal, Integer, Long, Binary, and Date.
All parameters need a name and a type. “Default value” and “Description” are recommended optional values.
