Javelin variable value is not fetching from data pool

Issue:

When I execute a Javelin flow by using a variable from the data data pool, it is not executing properly. It will execute the variable like it is from Javelin instead of dynamically fetching the variable data from the data pool.  There are no error messages in Javelin or the database. I am trying to execute the Javelin flow by a post publish action using a variable from the table. 


I have this user logon variable in Javelin: TAYLQVTST522 
This is the expected passing variable value: TAYLQVTST524 
This is the actual passing variable value: TAYLQVTST522

Environment:
CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Javelin
Resolution:

They way this works in Javelin is by pulling the value from your default publish, so the way you see it working now is per design. For future releases, we are looking at pulling it dynamically. 

For now as a workaround, you can have a simple database/table that you also write the value to, then do a query to store it into a Javelin variable.
