Elegant way to pass multiple arguments to a function

I've got a function which looks like this:

bool generate_script (bool net, bool tv, bool phone,
std::string clientsID,
std::string password,
int index, std::string number,
std::string Iport, std::string sernoID,
std::string VoiP_number, std::string VoiP_pass,
std::string target, int slot, int port,
int onu, int extra, std::string IP, std::string MAC);

In my opinion it looks ugly. What is the proper way of handling this problem? Should I create few vectors with different data types (int, string and bool) and pass them as arguments to this function?

If all these parameters are meaningfully related, pack them in a structure.
