Generate Parameter Set


Generate a named set of parameters.

The first argument is the name of parameter set you wish to generate. If not provided, this will default to the bundle name. By default, Porter will generate a parameter set for the bundle in the current directory. You may also specify a bundle with –file.

Bundles define 1 or more parameter(s) that are required to interact with a bundle. The bundle definition defines where the parameter should be delivered to the bundle, i.e. via DB_USERNAME. A parameter set, on the other hand, represents the source data that you wish to use when interacting with the bundle. These will typically be environment variables or files on your local file system.

When you wish to install, upgrade or delete a bundle, Porter will use the parameter set to determine where to read the necessary information from and will then provide it to the bundle in the correct location.
