Embed commands with preset parameters

The window panes of some commands in ArcGIS Pro can be embedded in the Tasks pane when a task step runs. Some commands have preset parameters, which become available in the Task Designer pane under Command/Geoprocessing when the command is embedded. These preset parameters define how the command behaves when the task step is run. For example, when embedding the Create command Create Features, you can filter which feature templates are displayed in the Create Features pane when the task is run.
