It is possible to pass options to a installer running in unattended mode with --param1 value1 syntax. For testing or automation purposes it is usually more convenient to pass the installer a "response file" that contains predefined settings. The options file gets passed with the switch --optionfile and contains an INI-style file with keys the names of the options it accepts:

installdir=/opt/mycustominstall
port=80
param1=value1
