input text not linked to entity

Hi There is something that I don’t understand in mendix. I need to have an input field that will be used as a parameter in a web api (or whatever I need, in a microflow) The thing is, I cannot add an input field without connecting it with an attribute from an entity, i could create an attribute for it but I really don’t see the point of storing that data because it is not relevant to keep it in the database. (I also tried the non persistant entity but it also seems not possible to do it). Someone knows the good way to do it?  Thanks!

The vision of Mendix is to have for every field an attribute in the domain model. If you don't need to store it, you could use an attribute of a non-persistant (helper) entity.
