Hi all,
what's the purpose of the checkbox column between "Context" and "Prompt" in context groups?

Hi,
To set the default value for your different contexts.
For example, for the "Dev" context, we set the value as "text1" and the input file stream will input the "text1"data in the tfileinputdelimited. When you change the context"Dev" into"Prod", the input file stream will be consistent with the default value set by "Prod"("text"). You will get two different output result when you under different context enviroment.

for dev, 'prompt' could be helpful to change & testing different value , (unit test to validate a tMap with some routine for exemple)

Thank you both!
Perhaps I'm missing something and am just too tired to find it - but is there documentation on this feature?

Hi,
Check the link http://talend.mindtouch.us/Community_Documentation_v5.1b/06_Data_Integration/Talend_Open_Studio_for_... to find a section called "How to use variables in the Contexts view". And if you cannot view it, tell us, we will paste it on the forum directly.
Best regards
