Parameters type "STRINGS"

Level 2
Parameters type "STRINGS"

The documentation mention the parameter type "STRINGS" which allows to give a "list of strings" to a plugin : https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/plugins/reference/params.html?highlight=strings#string-parameters

 

But a parameter configured as following doesn't work (type invalid, no field shown in UI) :

        {
            "name": "IDs",
            "label": "List of IDs",
            "type": "STRINGS",
            "description": "List of IDs identifying items",
            "mandatory": false
        },

Is there something I'm missing ? Or is it a bug / doc bug ?

Hi,

Unfortunately I was not able to reproduce the issue on my side with the provided information. 

Could you provide more details to help us better understand the situation ?

For example can you share the plugin directly ? If not can you:

  • provide the full JSON
  • let us know the component type you are building
  • a screenshot of the the settings UI where the parameter should be displayed
  • the errors if any

Thanks you.

Regards,

STRINGS and MULTISELECT were implemented in Dataiku 6. Perhaps you are using an older version?
