    Problem Statement: Repeater in Automation Step is not working as expected
    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Create variable customerid in Manage>Properties and set random digits from TDoD services and save the details.
    2. Create an Automation Layer from Home>Automation and assign a parameter (For example: Then I created customer ~customerid~) 
    3. Create a decision block and click on add Automation Step.
    4. Call the Automation Layer, Object Type and Action. 
    5. Set the parameter value customerid as customerid (which is created in Step 1)
    6. In the Repeater field give value >=2. 
    7. Click on Ok and save.
    8. Go to Path Explorer > select any optimization method and start optimization
    9. Store all the paths and navigate to View Backup and select any paths.
    10. And click on Automation > Click on Re generate script. 
    Expected Outcome:
    Same step should repeat 2/3 times (based on repeater) with same customerid (created step 1 and called at step 5) parameter value.
    For example:
    Step1 created customerid = 12345
    If repeater = 2
    Then I created customer 12345
    Then I created customer 12345

    Actual Outcome:
    Each iteration it generates new random digits.
    Step1 created customerid = 12345
    If repeater = 2
    Then I created customer 34566
    Then I created customer 56778

    Note: If user enters 1 in repeater section it uses the same customerid created at step1.
    Step1 created customerid = 12345
    If repeater = 2
    Then I created customer 12345
