Spatial Join in Model Builder (Field Map)

Hey everybody,

I have a problem, I need some help with.
I want to create an automated process in Model Builder that, beside other things, does a spatial join from a point to a polygon dataset. Once it´s finished, I want it to run with different datasets specified by the user.

In the Spatial Join tool I want to pre-specify a field map with join features. I want to calculate the MEAN and the STANDARD DEVIATION of point data fields. The process works fine, as long as I have input datasets specified.

The problem is that once I create Variables and Model Parameters and remove the original input datasets, the field map in the Spatial Join tool is getting deleted. Is there any possbility to keep the pre-defined field map?

Please refer to the attached screenshots for further information.
