Custom Step ReturnValue will not return JOB:PARENT_JOB_NAME

I have created a custom step called otReturnParentJobName.

 

It uses JTXSteps.ReturnValue and has only one argument

/value:[JOB:PARENT_JOB_NAME]

 

When I run this step in a job that is a child of another job I get the message "Invalid parameter"

 

I have checked the database table JTX_JOBS and know that this is a child and can find the name of the parent job in the table.

 

If I change the step to

/value:[JOB:PARENT_JOB]

 

It works successfully. Why can it get one value and not the other?

 

I am running 10.2.2 on Oracle.

 

Thanks,

     Alison
