The parameter_meta component is an optional property of a task. It is intended to store descriptions of input arguments and parameters used in the task command, which is particularly helpful if your variable names are not descriptive enough. Any item (i.e. input_file) in this section MUST be present in the command line.

Usage example

parameter_meta {
    input_file: "the BAM file to process"
    sample_id: "the name of a sample"
