When adding a build parameter (system property, environment variable, or configuration parameter) you can extend its definition with specification that will regulate parameter's control presentation and validation.
To add specification to a build parameter click Edit button in the Spec area when editing/adding a build parameter. All parameters specifications support a number of common properties, such as:
Depending on the specification's "type", there are additional settings.
Alternatively you can manually configure a specification using specially formatted string with syntax similar to the one used in service messages (typeName key='value').
If you start editing a parameter that has some specification, you can see a link to its raw value in "Edit parameter" dialog. Click it to view the specification in its raw form (in service message format). To use this specification in another build configuration, just copy it from here, and paste in another configuration.
