When you invoke the Controller from the command line, you can pass arguments to instruct the Controller how to behave. By passing arguments in the command line, you configure Controller scenario settings without the need to manually define them using the Controller UI.
When invoked, the Controller checks all of the received arguments and sets its start-up environment accordingly. If no arguments are passed, the Controller uses its default settings.
For example, you can instruct Controller to Connect to HP Application Lifecycle Management on start-up, save results to a folder other than the folder defined in the scenario, and invoke Analysis upon scenario termination.
