Inputs help extract dynamic information, usually specified at runtime, from repeatable configuration operations that can be codified. Inputs are variables defined in and used by RightScripts/Recipes. The two main attributes of an input are 'name' and 'value'. The 'name' identifies the input and the 'value', although a string encodes what type it is. It could be a text encoded as 'text:myvalue' or a credential encoded as 'cred:MY_CRED' or a key etc. Please see support.rightscale.com for more info on input hierarchies and their different types.
