Issue/Introduction

Since AWA 12.X, the variable inheritance does not work anymore in the PromptSet for "Text field" objects.



Caption : Nodename
Data reference : VARA.SQL.TEST (retrieve a value with a SQL request)
Variable name : &VARTEST#

Caption : Specific MU
Data reference : VARA.PRPT.TEST

Variable &VARTEST# is not interpreted by caption Specific result from VARA.PRPT.TEST (e.g : "TOTO") and retrieve this result.

Actual result :
VARA.MU.&VARTEST#

Expected result :

VARA.MU.TOTO



This same objects were working fine with AWA 11.X

Cause

As designed

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Since AWA 12.X, Dynamic input needs to be used for variable inheritance.

In this case, a "Combobox" object works perfectly to replace this "Text field" object.
