Description

I am not too fond of the idea of manually having to enter which attributes to use in a Processing model. For example, in the tool for creating points from a table, I manually have to enter (write) which fields to use for x/y coordinates. Wouldn´t it be better to allow a model to scan the data for attributes and let the user select relevant attributes from a list?

Related: When adding a vector layer to a model, why not choose the data source directly? That way, the model knows the available attributes. Having to define this each time I run a model is time consuming.
