Actual parameters

The Actual parameters tab displays the name and value of any actual parameters that you provided for the top-level procedure. An actual parameter is an object that provides the value for a parameter. It is passed to the procedure when it is invoked.

Output parameters

The Output parameters tab displays the name and value of any output parameters that were provided by the procedure during runtime. Output parameters allow you to determine what properties are generated by a process or procedure in order to use them. When you define output parameters at the procedure or process level, you do not need to look at the script under each step to determine what output properties are created when the procedure runs.


The Diagnostics tab lets you view specific types of diagnostic records.

If the job generated warning or error messages, this tab displays one or more diagnostics, each of which is a portion of a step’s log file. Typically, each diagnostic relates to an error or warning detected by the postprocessor. All diagnostics for a particular step appear together.

Each diagnostic contains a header line such as "Error #3 of 5" with an icon, followed by a line with additional identifying information and one or more lines extracted from the log file. The identifying line has a format similar to:

"systemTest-windows.log:16 (systemtest)"
  • The first part of the line provides the name of the log file ( systemTest-Windows.log ) and the line number of the first line in the file that is part of this diagnostic ( 16 ).

  • If you click on the log file name, CloudBees CD/RO displays the full log file for you, with the portion in this diagnostic highlighted. If the postprocessor was able to provide additional information about the issue, it is displayed in parentheses after the log filename. The first value ( systemtest-windows ) gives the name of a particular module or package in which the problem occurred.

  • The second value ( systemtest ) identifies a specific place where the problem occurred, such as the file name that did not compile or the name of a test that failed.


If you have designated certain persons or groups to be notified of details for specific job steps, the Notifiers tab displays who receives the email notification, the type of notification, any condition, and a description. You can click on the notifier’s name to view or edit the details.
