    Default passing parameters to in PDI data source

    I am using the 3.5.RC1 report designer.
    I defined a pentaho data integration data set. So far everything OK.

    Like i do with SQL i wanted to limit the dataset, so i defined an input parameter. How can i pass this input parameter to Kettle?

    Is this done by using a "get system data" step and set the type="command line argument x" or do i have to define a parameter in the "transformation properties" and read it with the "get variables" step?

    I tried both without success. Is this implemented?

    The UI does not yet allow to define parameters. This will get fixed in the next days. (PRD-1825)
