johanhyrefeldt is on a distinguished road

In my Fluent problem I have an inlet and outlet divided into different segments. The inlet consists of 6 adjacent faces, each with its own named selection, and therefore I can choose to close one inlet segment by changing the BC-type to "wall" instead of my other option "pressure-inlet". The same applies for the outlet segments and I can switch these between "pressure-outlet" and "wall".

My problem is that I want to create a parameter for each inlet/outlet segment that can switch the BC-type between "wall" and "pressure-inlet/outlet". My idea is to run a DOE in workbench containing parameters for the BC-types and get results for different combinations of open/closed segments. Is there any way to create a parameter set with one parameter for each inlet segment and outlet segment where the values of the parameters are either "wall" or "pressure-inlet" respectively "pressure-outlet"?
