Fields in curly braces not working

#1 jmorrison (Last updated )

I used a configuration right out of the documentation. This error is logged at startup. I have to remove all fields referenced in curly braces ${}

Hi John,

There might be a problem with your logic&syntax there. Just wanted to double check what's the intended condition inside the if statement, and why is there a new line between the two parts without using braces? 

Please try something like:

if (type(${Framed-MTU}) NOT IN ('integer'))


   ${Framed-MTU} = integer(${Framed-MTU});
