ArcGIS Toolbox (.tbx) input a Multipoint object

How can i set the input parameter in Toolbox created using ArcGIS Desktop to a Multipoint object, that will take input multipoint object as one of its parameters from user .

Currently i can only take a point as input paramter in toolbox script create using ArcGIS Desktop.

One Way is to take it as a WKT string from the user in String parameter of script created in ArcGIS Desktop. then i can convert that wkt string to a Multipoint object in python code.

But i want to get an input as multipoint object from the user.

Current Working environment: ArcGIS Desktop 10.4.1, Python 2.7, Windows 7

Hi Ahsan,

You can do this using the Filter option for the input parameter:
