Hello guys,
I'm not a developper and have very little knowledge in programming. I'm trying to modify the following line.

I need to grab only the first or last 4 characters of the "Package.ID" after the "720" what's the correct way of doing it?


the_id = "ABCD${asset?.PlatformAsset?.Package.ID}720${asset?.PlatformAsset?.Package.ID}3"


Thank you
