naming – What is the name of this pattern / style?

We have a “workflow orchestration” system at work.

It works something like this:

You configure what to run (in a database table), such as:

NameOfStepATHingToRun ="weather_data"
RunStepB? = No
RunStepC? = Yes
StepCArguments = Canada,USA

(this goes on with maybe 20 total columns)

Then your configuration is run through a few large functions, with lots of if/else statements

The problem for me is that if I want to change something, like adding a step or having a different way to run a step, then that change affects every workflow – and there ain’t a lot of testing going on

It certainly feels like an anti-pattern/design smell to me, but I can’t find a name for it
