Square Bracket added by Groovy when extracting part of the API header

Somehow Groovy would tag on the square brackets when I retrieved part of the header.  I can certainly remove the square brackets by string manipulations but I like to understand why the square brackets are added.


Please refer to 2 examples below:


Example-1 (no square bracket added by Groovy))

String MESSAGE1 = tStep.getTestRequest().response.responseHeaders " Seq="+i+" "+MESSAGE1

Display:  Fri Sep 17 15:50:55 EDT 2021:INFO: Seq=0 #status# : HTTP/1.1 204 Date : Fri, 17 Sep 2021 19:50:55 GMT


Exmaple-2: (square brackets added by Groovy)

MESSAGE1 = tStep.getTestRequest().response.responseHeaders.'#status#' = MESSAGE1

Display:  Fri Sep 17 15:50:55 EDT 2021:INFO: Seq=0 [HTTP/1.1 204 ]

      Hello Mis3 

      sorry for the late response. I just saw this now as I'm also looking on how to get rid of those brackets in groovy.

      But for your problem I would suggest to write a ticket to support from SmartBear. I think this is a bug.


      Kind regards
