How do we hide a user input field. I'm basically editing the VMware NFS Datastore creation workflow. I need to the vCenter IP address in the workflow however I don't need users to see this input field, only the clusters on the vCenter field. Is there a way to make variable invisible to the users of the workflow while maintain the flexibility that variables give us?

I've looked at both constants and functions. I think the function would be the best way to go but it doesn't appear to be able to be used in a SQL query. I think I'm going to have to figure a way to have the workflow write to the playground database and work off that.
Does anyone happen to have an example of having a workflow write to the playground database?

Here is the link to the discussion about accessing playground database https://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-30478.
Currently .net and perl connectors for mysql database have not been bundled, they will be bundled by default in the next release of WFA.

If you don't want your user variables invisible in UI, then you have to hard code the values in command instance variables field in single quotes (ex: ip address as '10.238.x.x') , this way you prevent the variables to come up into the UI.
