Getting ‘Message’ Field Type Property Values of dropdown field

Hi, I’m building a new Integration App that has a action that activated by automation.
Similar to the Slack integration recipe, I would like to allow the user to input a custom message with the option to auto-populate Item properties.

For example,

For this example, on my server, I got only the ID of the dropdown option which is “{pulse.dropdown8}” and not its value.

How can I get the value in this scenario?


You cannot directly, at least that I am aware of, and you have to parse the message for the columns/fields and then fetch those values, and substitute them into the string in place of the placeholders. There may be some libraries that could assist with the parsing and substitution, but its not mustaches/handlebars syntax so its not that simple.
