Abir, can you please provide some additional details.

1. Page Type.

Record List Page. For Record List page, where there is no single record in context you will need to use a select query API variant like rbf_selectValue and add a where clause to ensure a single record is available in result set.

Record View/Details page: You can directly use a token here such as {!status#code} or {!status#value} where status is integration name of picklist field

Record Edit/New/Status Change Form Pages: For form pages to retreive value of a form control consider using client-side api rbf_getPicklistCode(). Else use tokens as state above to retreive  currently set value.

2. For Picklist are you trying to retrieve integration code/id/value?

3. If you are still seeing errors, please share error details. Also, if you could create a sample app demonstrating the issue and share in this forum thread it will help in resolving the issue quickly and steadfastly.

Abir, have reviewed the app you have shared. It required a very minor correction in the script component.

For tokens that evalute to string literals, we need to include them in quotes as follows:

console.log('{!status#value}') ;

Have also attached the corrected app for your reference.
