Parameterization of Date/TimeConfig for DB Table Reader Custom SQL follow up

This is a follow up from Parameterization of Date/TimeConfig for DB Table Reader custom SQL - #6 by ebarr to @hmfa

Hi @ebarr , by default, variables created within a component do not get exposed “down stream” from the component.

To make them available, you need to open the configuration of the Component Output node, and then you can choose which flow variables to be made available outside of the component. Hope that helps.


That’s the piece I was missing! VERY grateful - I’ve been trying to figure this out for quite some time. That was the solution


Thanks for the help @takbb and I’m sorry for the late response.

You can look at this pdf for more information about components.
