Hi @YilmazDincer,

 

As mentioned by @SanDev and @Josep you will need to load the list content into the context first. Before the task in your screenshot run the !getList listName=${account_name} extend-context=<contextKey>= automation. That will load the contents into the context. You can then call that content inside you task.

 

Thanks.

Hi @YilmazDincer,

The tokens will be replaced only once. You can use the !getList automation to get the list data first. 

Sir, I want to extract data from the list interactively with the account_name that comes here. I will search the interactively incoming data(account_name) in the list

Normally I load all the list in the context, and after any change I update the list again. Not the best way.

Are you trying to do this programmatically or within a playbook?

Regards

I think, i'll explain better as a screenshot. I'm using opsgenie-create-alert and in the "responders" , i want to use this structure to take Opsgenie team name. 

I think there's no way of using a list directly like you did. Something before has to be done.
