I am having problems when using setProperty WDL function in the context of a variable.
I am declaring two object variables: "testObject" and "auxObject" via two "Initialize variable" action blocks by assigning the following value:
Then, I am setting auxObject value via "Set variable" action block by assigning the following expression:
I can save the flow, and execute it successfully.
The problem arises when I edit the flow, flow editor shows the following error:
It seems once saved and reedited, Flow Editor is understanding the expression as a string instead.
So a remove the string, add the expression instead. I can save he flow and execute it successfully. But when I re-edit this flow, the Flow Editor is displaying the error again. I am using Chrome as browser.
Please try to enter the function under Express tab of the Value field.
I assume that the error “Enter a valid json” won’t appear again.
if you are still having the issue, please feel free post back.
Thank you for your fast response.
Your suggestion is what I am doing: I am entering the function under Express tab of the Value field. Then I save and execute the flow successfully (meaning the flow and the expression results are under the expected behaviour).
The problem arises when I re-edit the flow, the screenshot I shared is showing how the action block shows the expression when I press "Edit" whitout any other intervention from my side. So, every time I re-edit, I am forced to re-enter the function under Express tab of the Value field, because for some reason, flow editor shows it as a conventional string.
Can you reproduce the problem?
I am not able to reproduce this issue on my side.
To test this issue, I create a flow with the actions “Initialize variable” and “Set variable”, save the flow first, then edit the flow.
When I click the Edit flow button, I don’t get the issue you mentioned. The function in the Value field displays as expected.
Which browser are you using? Please try with a different browser to see if it will work. I am using Edge on my side.
