How to pass parameters in custom search command?

Explorer

I am trying out custom search command.
I have in commands.conf the below

[createrecord1]
chunked = true
filename = myjava.path
command.arg.1 = -jar
command.arg.2 = splunkcreaterecord1.jar

I would like to know how to pass argument values from search
eg if I type |createrecord1 **100**
it execute " java -jar splunkcreaterecord.jar" without the parameter

I would like the jar file to be executed as java -jar splunkcreaterecord.jar **100**

Kindly assist

Define it like this:

 [createrecord1]
 chunked = true
 filename = myjava.path
 command.arg.1 = jar

Then use it like this:

... | createrecord1 jar "splunkcreaterecord1.jar"
