Pass Variable names to the flow not the value of the response

Hi all, is there any way to pass a variable name from PVA to Flow? I can pass on the value stored as response in the variable but not the actual variable name. I need to get the name of the variable in PVA and send that as an email to myself.

Just trying to fulfill a requirement.

If you want to explain better about your requirement, maybe I can try to find a new workaround to do it, like calling bot Framework Composer and then call Power Automate passing fixed values or something like that.

I am saving my conditions in a variable and naming the variable as "Topic Name". so when a user clicks a response, I send an email to myself. At the moment, I can receive the response selected by the user but not the name of the variable in which the response is saved.

Creating your own variable would solve my issue, I hope it gets released soon
