How to link a geoprocessing pick list (combobox) to field?

This should easy but my attempts have failed and my searches come up empty.

 

I can build something like this below but the values in the drop down are static.  I want the drop to be dynamic with the values coming from a field.  As seen here I need job name to be linked to a geodatabase.  Ideally I would also like to be able to base Job Name on what was picked for Map Type.

Any publishing of the service seems to embed the values permanently so I would have to republish nightly to update list?

 

The query widget seems to do what i want but I see no way to link it to a geoprocessing tool.  Some setting in the geoprcesssing tool like "Link to selected features" would be nice.

 

Having a use select a polygon from a feature class then I use the attributes from that polygon for the tool would be ok but I only see a way to draw polygons for selection not click on one.

 

I got this to work in ArcMap using some funky validation code.  It was slow but worked.  Seems like this would be a simple click or checkbox in Web App Builder but I just am not seeing it.

 

Thanks.
