Is there a way to define a parameter as global inside ANSYS Workbench?

      I have imported input parameters from ANSYS Maxwell and Structural. I want to define one of the parameters as global inside Workbench so that it can be used for both the EM and Structural. Is there a way to do this?

      Do you mean you have input parameters for Maxwell and Static structural and want to drive these input parameters from a single input parameter?
      If yes, simply create a new input parameter with any name by simply typing a new name:

      This has to be unitless, so add any unitless value in the expression.
      Now, You can link any of the input parameters to this newly created parameters by selecting and changing its expression as shown below:

      Now in this example, P2 is an independent parameter which in turn drives the P1. You can link as many as input parameters from simulation to this parameter and all of them will change with single value change of global parameter.

      Thank you Aniket.
      I want to be able to use one common parameter for both Maxwell and Static structural analysis. For example I want to use the same parameter to define the rotation speed in both analysis (I want the same variable to define the rotation speed value inside Maxwell and Static Structural). I am thinking that this can be done if I can have a global workbench parameter which I can use in any analysis blocks in the workbench project.

      So in the above explanation, P2 is the global driving parameter, which will drive the P1, (and can drive P3, P4 coming from any systems)
