Patch level detected:Dollar Universe 6.3.00
Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6.3.01

Description :It is impossible to access the external script (CL_EXT) from UVC if the path that is pointing to the script contains a variable that is not native to Dollar Universe, for instance
%MY_VARIABLE%\external_script.bat
or
${MY_VARIABLE}/external_script.bat

Also a variable created in the node variables is not recognized.

This only concerns editing the script from Univiewer, script execution works correctly.
Environment:
OS: All
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: This is a expected behaviour in the product.
Resolution:
Use a native DUAS variable like for example %UNI_DIR_ROOT% or ${UXPEX} or edit the script outside Univiewer directly on the node.

Fix Status: No Fix
