How to convert a list into int in xsoar automation. 


L1 Bithead

Can you clarify what do you mean?

You can get the list data in playbooks. For example, in the playbook inputs, the value can be lists.<list_name>

I have a numeric value stored in list. I want to fetch that data in script and process it (that is perform increment operation on it). I’m not able to convert the list data to int to perform addition. Is there a way to convert it

Hi @RameshRath, when creating the argument for your automation ensure you select the "Is Array" option. When you pass an array to the automation XSOAR will consider as single piece of data.

In your automation you can retrieve the list and the contents of the list using the getList function, available from your Script Helper.

# get the list contents.
my_list = demisto.executeCommand("getList", {"listName":"YourListNameHere"})[0]['Contents']


Once you have the contents of the list, you can do with it what you want in your python code.  If the list has a number, then you can convert it to an int simply with 

x = int(my_list) + 4
