Create temporary selection list in HPOO 10.22?

I'm working on a flow that extracts a list of files from a selected server and filters the list from stdout into a flow variable.  Here is an example list:

/opt/ihs/85/conf/admin.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/bae_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/bgl_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/estieng_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/exp_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/fis_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/funds_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/httpd.brsvc.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/httpd_fistm.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/obm_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/secure_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/skl_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/soasvcs_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/uad_httpd.conf
/opt/ihs/85/conf/webbatch-httpd.conf

I would then like the user to select one the files from the list which will then become input to the next step in the flow.  This selection list only needs to exist for the duration of the flow that is running.  The "Set Selection List" operation appears to only function to create a new selection list in the repository to be used in future flows.  Is there a way to simply create a selection list "on the fly" that is available to the current running flow and goes away once the flow terminates?

Thanks,

-Chuck

Hello Chuck,

Thank you for contacting HPE Forum. 

My name is Andrey, I am from the OO/CSA team. 

Regarding your question, unfortunately, there are just two operations  for creating selection lists in the HP Solutions CP (one for OO 10.x and the other one for 9.x) and both of them do not  possess the ability to create a selection list only during the flow execution.

Hi Chuck,

do you want to expose that list to the customer as input within the flow?

If yes do note that there is Prompt User > Selection. When you choose this one you get the option to point to flow variable too.

Something similar to the below.

Hope it helps,
