{{job.trigger.type}} not working and throws error on Edit Parameter from Job page

Following the instruction on the Job Parameter Dynamic values, I am able to use 

{{job.id}}
{{job.name}}
{{job.run_id}}
{{job.repair_count}}
{{job.start_time.[argument]}}
However, when I set trigger_type as trigger_type: {{job.trigger.type}} and hit SAVE, it errors out as below image.

also, I noticed that the Dynamic values window from the Job parameter Edit Parameters page vs. the official doc has discrepancy - {{job.parameters.[name]}} is missing from the Job parameter Edit Parameters page.

Hi @BrianJ  - As a workaround, can you please add the parameter at the task level instead of the job level - {{job.trigger.type}}. 

@BrianJ  -  Have shared the details with the Databricks Engineering team to have this issue addressed. we assure that the issue will be prioritized and fixed in the next release. Kindly use the workaround to proceed further on this.

Thanks everyone, I decided to use the Sparkcontext instead.
