Calculating a Parameter

I need to use a calculated date in a pipeline, more specifically I need to make an HTTP call, where a date range of the form of a ‘From’ and ‘To’ date, of the form “2023-09-10”.

I can calculate this date as a field in a record using 



But this does not work in the ‘required data’, what would normally be the request body in a post request

It seems I can use a parameter in this section as follows 


but when I try to create a parameter that calculates the date, using the above formula, I get an EL expression error 

Can someone suggest where I am going wrong?

I have also tried using start jobs, to pass the dates as a parameter, but that also doesn’t seem to work, I can pass a manually entered date to this ‘child job’ but it seems to convert them from string into another form (can’t figure what happens here).
