In some scenarios, user parameters are automatically created and linked to an FME parameter, without any sort of manual action by the workspace author.
For example, any time a Reader or Writer is added to a workspace, their source/destination dataset parameters are automatically turned into user parameters.
Here, a Source MapInfo TAB parameter is automatically linked to a user parameter called SourceDataset_MITAB:
This automatically occurs for parameters that are important to the end-user and that appear in nearly all workspaces.

If you – as the workspace author – don’t want or require the end-user to have access to pre-linked parameters, then what can you do?
1. Delete the Reader/Writer
2. Unlink the user parameter
3. Delete the FME parameter
4. Delete the user parameter
