Parameters for batch runs

The subsequent dialogs depend on the analysis being run and the data being input. Generally, one of the batch units will be specified as the parameter prototype and will then be used to guide the choices in the dialogs. By default, the first batch unit (marked in bold) is used for this purpose. This can be changed by right-clicking another batch unit and choosing the option Set as Parameter Prototype.

When launching tools normally (non-batch runs), the Workbench does much validation of inputs and parameters. When running in batch, this validation is not performed. This means that some analyses will fail if combinations of input data and parameters are not right. Therefore we recommend that batching is used when the batch units are quite homogenous in terms of the type and size of data.
