Not sure what happened there, but the parameters never got documented, I fixed it. In future, just use Jira if you find a substantive bug or gap in the documentation, or if it's a typo you can just fix it yourself.

I'm not sure how you even found it by searching unless you found the source code.

I don't know it, so if you do, I'd suggest you just add it.
