⚠️ We've moved!

Hi there!

To reduce project dependency on 3rd party paid services the StackStorm TSC has decided to move the Q/A from this forum to Github Discussions. This will make user experience better integrated with the native Github flow, as well as the questions closer to the community where they can provide answers.

How can I provide a list of options as a dropdown in core.ask

In my workflow, I’m trying to provide a list of options to the user to choose from in “core.ask” action. This list is a published variable from the previous task. How do I achieve this?

    action: core.ask
        type: object
           type: string
            description: "Target state"
            required: true
              - with: 
                  items: <% ctx(target_states) %>

This does not seem to work. It causes the UI to crash/reload when the option is provided like this.

in the st2debug, this is what I see -

{“allowed_nss_states”: {“required”: true, “type”: “string”, “description”: “Target state”, “enum”: [{“with”: {“items”: [“InM”, “InP”, “InR”, “DR”, “D”, “InM”]}}]}}}}

Turns out it was quite simple, I just had to do it the following way -

enum: <% ctx(target_states) %>
