Is it possible to set the default value of custom field of type checkbox to "Checked"?


I have created a step template in Octopus 2.5.x, which supports custom field types for it’s parameters. I set my field to type Checkbox and by default it is not checked. I’d like to set it’s default value to checked though and I wonder if the default value for this field type can be set at all or whether it doesn’t apply, just like the help text states.

I tried setting the default value to 1, true, even checked, but to no avail. Of course I could also create a drop down field with two entries and then set the default value, which works just fine.

Thx for the insight!

Figured it out by accident. Apparently the correct string is case-sensitive “True”.
