Script Task Argument Limit

Is there a limit on the number of arguments you can pass down to a script.

Noticing in a script of ours we're getting incorrect arguments passed into the scripts and the only major difference is that we're passing down more arguments.

Hi,

 

May I know how you are passing the arguments.

 

Please refer the screenshots for configuring more than one argument for the script task. Please accept the answer if it works for you so that others can also benefit from it.Screen Shot 0029-10-11 at 10.20.00 PM.pngScreen Shot 0029-10-11 at 10.20.27 PM.png

Apologies

We found exactly what the issue was and it was bash itself and how it takes in args. 

When you hit 10 arguments we needed to encase the input assignment in {}.

So instead you have ${10}. $10 was being treated as $1

Yes, that is what the Linux part is.
In shell scripting, if you want to use arguments to pass on to a script and if the argument number reaches 10 and above you have to use it like this ${10}

Makes sense!

 

Thanks for accepting the answer.

 

Cheers,

Robhit
