How to combine Release Automation dynamic property with string in promptset?

    I have some variables coming in from Release Automation(from component dynamic properties) to Workload Automation.

    When I put only "EXT:/package" in the promptset, the value for it gets replaced.

    But when I try to combine some string with the variable like above, the complete value becomes string only and value is not getting replaced for "{EXT:/package}".

    How do I achieve this?

    @karthikeayan,

    https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/ARA/12.0/DOCU/12.0/ARA%20Guides/Default.htm#ARA/Properties/dynprop_creating.htm%3FTocPath%3DUser%2520Guide%7CWorking%2520with%2520Properties%7CWorking%2520with%2520Dynamic%2520Properties%7CCreating%2520Dynamic%2520Properties%7C_____0

    Combining static strings and variable values should be done at Component Dynamic Property definition level.

    Example

    Then on your component workflow step for Promptset you use it as
    EXT:/expected_text
    (based on example above)


    Another option, but it is more convoluted, if you must combine some dynamic properties values with variables that get generated at Workflow runtime and also some static strings is to convert your Dynamic Properties values to Variables first and then you can combine multiple variables as one input into the Promtset field.

    Example:

    PCK.AUTOMIC_DM.PUB.ACTION.GET_DYNAMIC_PROPERTY Action can be used to convert Dynamic Property value to variable and then on your Component Workflow step in Promtset used as

    prefix_string_&UC4RB_RM_OUT_DYN_VALUE#_&MYVAR2#_postfix_string
    Note that at this point no "EXT:" is used.
