Pipeline Properties

On this page

Pipeline properties can be viewed and partially edited in the Edit Pipeline dialog available when you click the Edit Pipeline Properties button on the toolbar.



Required. The name for the Pipeline. Each Pipeline within a Project must have a unique name. The label must not exceed 100 characters.


Required. The Project in which you save the Pipeline, displayed as <project_space>/<project_name>. All necessary resources (such as files and Accounts) should be within the same Project unless they are part of the Shared project.


Selecting this checkbox displays the Pipeline parameter values in the Pipeline Execution Statistics window on SnapLogic Dashboard, when the Pipeline is run through a Task or another Pipeline with the PipeExecute Snap.

You can define Parameters to be used during Pipeline execution. Pipeline parameters can only contain alpha-numeric characters, such as: myParam1.

To use the value of the parameter as part of an expression within a Snap, you must use the underscore character ( _ ) as a prefix to the parameter name, as in the following: 
'/out' + _myParam1 + '.json'

Parameters can also have their values defined on a Task.

You can also reference an account with an expression through Pipeline parameters, and therefore, configure multiple Pipelines to use a single account reference (credentials) through that Pipeline parameter.

Expression Libraries

List of expression libraries to import. See Expression Libraries for more information.

  • Path: Path to the file that contains the expression to import. The path can be absolute or relative to the current project
  • As: The name to use for the library under the 'lib' variable. Defaults to the base name of the file.

Open API

The Open API tab can be used to add descriptive information about the Pipeline parameters like data type and description. This information is helpful to other Pipeline developers in understanding what each of the Pipeline parameter represents. Pipeline parameters are not populated in this tab unless the Pipeline has been saved. If you have added new parameters since the last time you saved the Pipeline, save the Pipeline again to update this tab.

KeyThe name of the Pipeline parameter as given in the Parameters section (Key). 

The data type of the parameter. Choose appropriately from the drop-down. The following data types are listed:

  • string
  • number
  • byte
  • binary
  • boolean

Default value: string

For more information regards the data types refer to Data Types.


A description of the parameter, this description will be shown in the API document that is created of the Pipeline properties. Makes it easier for the user to understand the parameter.
