    Random Value Generator widget always generates the value with all character and ignores the ALLOWED CHAR settings.

    Hi Team,


    Random Value Generator

    is not working correctly.  It is displaying numbers, letters, and symbols when only numbers is selected.  I made no changes so it must be on your end.  See link:

    Hello Daniel,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I am able to replicate the issue you are having. It seems the "Random Value Generator" widget does not generate the random number as per the setting. It seems to always generates with setting "Allowed chars=ALL".

    I am reporting it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as this issue is fixed.

    Thank you!
