Passing Arguments to Scheduler Chains

ora_et_laboraJun 16 2011 — edited Jun 17 2011
Dear fellows of the Oracle,

can I pass arguments to programs within a chain?

What already works is calling a program from a job, passing an argument to the program. So far, so good.
What I'm trying to do is to run a Scheduler Chain, where one of its steps starts the said program.

Now, when I create a job to run the chain, I cannot add an argument value anymore with


because this throws an ora-27475.
Looking at the docs it seems as if there's no way to do what I want - which I thought I could take for granted...
Any ideas, anyone?

I'm on
Kind regards,
