Set an 'expression' as default field in action of custom connector

Scenario:

I want to pass the current time as default parameter in one of the fields of an action of my custom connector.

 

My approach:

In my swagger definition, I have the field defined as

                "startdate": {
                  "type": "string",
                  "description": "Start Date",
                  "title": "Start Date",
                  "x-ms-visibility": "",
                  "default": "utcNow()"
                }

But when I use the action in a flow, the field is shown as

Capture.PNG

When the flow runs, it does not take in the expression value.

 

This is not read as an expression as opposed to when it is added manually by me, where it is displayed as

Capture.PNG

 

 

What change should I make to put expressions as default values.

 

Thanks

Thanks

Expressions should be enclosed under @{}

As given below

               "startdate": {
                  "type": "string",
                  "description": "Start Date",
                  "title": "Start Date",
                  "x-ms-visibility": "",
                  "default": "@{utcNow()}"
                }
