Passing user input into Geoprocessing service as dataset

I have a script tool that runs in ArcGIS Desktop and a slightly modified copy that runs in ArcGIS Pro. The tool takes input from a user via arcpy.GetParameterAsText. This input corresponds with the name of a layer in map. The text string is then passed into a series of geoprocessing steps.


The tool is published to Portal however, when I try and run it in a web app I get an error which reads File "e:\program files\arcgis\server\framework\runtime\arcgis\Resources\arcpy\arcpy\geoprocessing\", line 368, in describe self._gp.Describe(*gp_fixargs(args, True))) OSError: "Layer Name" does not exist. Is there something I am needing to do to convert the text string value to JSON so that the geoprocessing steps in the script will recognize the appropriate layer?
