Hi all,

 

Is there a way to remove the word '(optional)' when generating a Flow App?

I find unnecessary text too noisy for the user...they don't need to see the text (optional) on the app. Be good if there was an option to turn this prompt off??

 

thanks,

Tim

Hi tdun, I think 'optional' are user parameters configured in Workbench without the "Required"parameter_required_tick_boxIn terms of a workspace/server app, this optional in brackets appears hardcoded for not required user parameters.

 

An idea would be to add an option to remove the (optional) alias https://community.safe.com/s/article/fme-server-apps workspace_server_app_show_parameters

Mmm, yeah this would be a nice feature I think.

 

Althought instead it might be nice to include a little red '*' for required parameters like you see with most other forms on websites
