Specifying parameters on Custom Builds of Chained build configurations

We have a simple Build Chain Compile->Test->Completion. How do invoke a custom build that allows the sharing of a parameter among all the build configurations of the build chain?

This is not what we are looking for. On our example of a build chain you invoke "Completion" which causes "Compile", then "Test" to run. When invoking "Completion" we need to be able to pass a parameter to the "Compile" build configuration. Specifying a dependent property on the Custom Build of "Completion" is not passed to the "Compile" build step.

I need exactly this as well.

From the REST api you can trigger a build and specify the properties for that run, the same functionality is needed for dependencies so you can "cascade" properties down the chain.
