Is it possible to use nested variables in XSOAR?

L1 Bithead

Hi all,

A customer of ours is trying a curious thing and I am not sure if it is possible in general, so I guessed the best way would be to ask right away. Our customer created a XSOAR list, that contains a html string with context data variables in it, like ${testinput}.

In a playbook with test incidents he has set the key (e.g. ${testinput} = "test"). Now he tries to call the list as a variable in a task (${list.mylist}) and send the html body from the list as a mail, in which the variables (like ${testinput}) would be interpreted and sent out as the value of the key. So the receiver would get a mail with "test" in the mailbody, not "${testinput}". In this scenario, the mail will always be filled with "${testinput}".

 

My question in general is: Is it possible at all to make XSOAR interpret nested variables as the context value, like in this example? Or will XSOAR always interpret the top level variable as a pure string, so that the lower level variables won't be interpreted.

Thanks for your time and work. I am very curious about your answer to my question.

Kindly,
