We’ve found the object repo a really useful feature and it’s helped us expand our reuse first approach however we’re struggling to find a way to dynamically set the URL of the Browser or FilePath of an application when using the Use Application/Browser activity with an application from the Object Repo.
What we would like to be able to do is set the value of the URL or filepath by using a variable or argument but it appears we can only hardcode a string in these fields as any value we input has double quotes added at runtime.
The only way we’ve found so far that comes close to working is to pull in the application from the Object repo and then unlink it so that we can add a variable. This gives us a degree of reuse but means that if we make any updates to the UI Descriptor it won’t get picked up by any activities where we have unlinked from the Object Repo.
Is there any way we can set URLs or Filepaths in the applications in the Object Repo dynamically and for the descriptor in the Use Application/Browser to remain linked to the Object Repo
