Modular Workflow: Expression could not be evaluated


Hi All,

        I am building a Modular workflow with 2 command and a child workflow repeated twice.

When doing a preview I get the following error, in my parent workflow were the child workflow get evaluated.


The '' expression that is used to define the '$ClusterName' user input in the 'Storage Reclamation_Progress' child workflow could not be evaluated.
Reason: Illegal expression:
Location: 'Storage Reclamation_Progress' child workflow > 'Workflow' tab > 'renamePrimaryVolume' variable




quiesceSnapmirror is the Variable definintion for SnapMirror Quiesce Command

renamePrimayVolume is the Variable definintion for child workflow step in the parent workflow

Storage Reclamation_Progress is the Child workfow name










Hi All,

 I got this resolved, with help of paragp one of the netapp engineer. Thanks to him for the same.

The issue was, in the child workflow, I was using the reference of variables defined in my first step/command which was disabled due to the logic in my workflow
