Parameters
When creating new variables and partition variables (or using filters and comparisons) in the Redivis transform interface, you'll use a variety of inputs to specify different parameters of the following types:

variable

Refers to a Redivis variable, often limited to a specific subset of types. A searchable dropdown input allows you to find and select a variable.
When using variable parameters in a given transform, you'll be able to reference variables from the source table, variables in tables referenced by joins, or new variables created upstream of the parameter.

literal

Refers to a string, integer, boolean, or floating point value. A text input allows you to type a literal value.
When using literal parameters, you'll be able to type any constant value (e.g, false, 1.0, 'test'), or use a value list to reference the same set of values anywhere in your project.
If using a literal parameter in a comparison (usually on the right hand side), you may have to match the type of literal with the parameter you used on the left hand side.

enum

Refers to a set of distinct values, usually of a homogenous type. A select input allows you to choose one value of the enum set for a given parameter.
For example, if a required parameter used a "timezone" enum with 3 options (PST, MST or EST), you would have to select one of the three options (PST) for the value of that parameter.

boolean

Refers to values true or false. A checkbox allows you to select (true) or deselect (false) the boolean parameter.

case

Refers to a set of clauses used in the case method, where each clause involves a comparison and a variable or literal.
