How to use a list as input argument in List options in automation?

L1 Bithead

Hi Everyone,

I am creating a automation which shows a dynamic drop down list as input to user using List options of arguments but I am not able to find any way to do this.


Anything I give in highlighted text box is static to user but I want to list dynamic options using list.

Hello Nitin,


The "List options" is used to show a dropdown list of values for that argument when you are trying to use your automation in the task. 


If you want to use a dynamic list in your automation you can utilize different list commands found in the Script Helper or you can use the automation in a playbook task and use the value of a dynamic list I.e. "${listname}" as the value of an argument. 


I hope this helps.

Hey Thanks Albmartinez for the reply.

Yes, I can use list from script helper in automation but that is not the problem.
I am actually trying to show different options depending on different incidents.

For example, if I get some incident related to "Endpoint Isolation" then consider a Button as "Remediation" and when Analyst clicks on it, then it will show option1: Isolate host & option2: Quarantine Host
But when any incident related to "User Isolation" comes then from the same "Remediation" button I want to show option1: Password Reset and option2: Disable user.

I don't see any way to achieve it through list options in button script
