Unable to get parameter value added using Add-WorkflowParameter and Get-WorkflowParameter

[ Edited ]

Unable to get the value using Add-Workflow Parameter and Get-WorkflowParameter wfa commands. 

 

In one of the command I used 

 

Add-WfaWorkflowParameter -Name "PolicyName" -Value $VserverName+"_ESX" -AddAsReturnParameter $true

 

And in other command I need this policy name value and I wrote 

 

$ExportPolicy=Get-WfaWorkflowParameter -Name "PolicyName"

 

But it is unable to get any value.

Rutul, these value are avaiable only when the worklfow is executing and not during preview of the workflow or planning. Also the command with "Get" should be after the command with "Add" in the workflow execution.I used the two lines you have mentioned in two different commands and can see that the value available in the second command.

So you mean Both Add and Get commands should be used in single command and then i can use that in different command ?

No, Add and Get are usually to be used in different commands. The only condition is that  the command with Add should be before the command with Get in the workflow. And you can see the values only when you execute the workflow.
