    Hi krogold ,


    Ok, i think i read it correctly, that you want to set a custom property at run time at a step that is groovy step,


    so it's not possible to do so. If you want to achieve than store the value in context variable and use it in your groovy step


    	device ->
    	// check external id
    	step = testRunner.testCase.getTestStepByName("check externalId")
    	//step.setPropertyValue("uid", device) don't use as there is no custom property at groovy step
    context.setProperty("uid", device) testRunner.runTestStepByName("check externalId") }

    and in calling groovy step use below to fetch value from context variable


    Hope this will help, if you find any issue please let me know.
