  1. At the hierarchy for the script service, specify substitutions for the parameters. For example:
    [edit services global service cos-service]user@host# set parameter substitution [ dynSecret=\”secret\” dynRetry=2 dynClientIp= dynClientPort=9099 "dynConfig=\"start-stop.1.string=primaryUserName\\nstart-stop.Acct-Session-id=ifSessionId \\nstart.vendor-specific.4874.108.string=['T01 3m', 'T04 consumer-scheduler-map']\\nstop.vendor-specific.4874.108.string=['T01 1m', 'T04 data-scheduler-map']\\nstart.vendor-specific.4874.10.string='video' \\nstop.vendor-specific.4874.10.string='default'\\n\"" ]
