Issue/Introduction

When trying to set the MAX_PARALLEL_TASKS to a specific value with PUT_ATT, it will be ignored if "Generate at runtime" is selected in the Attributes tab.
This value works correctly when "Generate at execution" is selected.

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Cause

As design : PUT_ATT is done at script generation.
When "Generate at runtime" is selected, the script generate is done AFTER the max_parallel checks.
