Issue/Introduction

When trying to format the output string from a command line in a VARA_BACKEND variable (Unix system) the agent will instantly crash after trying to "Preview" the VARA output.
For example, using the command line below will not work (adding a "-" in the output) :

ls -l $(find /var/log/ -name "*.txt* ) | awk '{printf ("%s-%s %s %s\n",$6,$7,$8,$9)}'

The error below will show instead of the command preview :
