You need to use Expression to add string() function around output. Follow below steps:

  1. Inside compose action, Click where you want add the variable/output of previous action.
  2. Click on Add dynamic content
  3. Select Expression from the popup opened at the right side
  4. Type string() & put cursor inside parentheses

  6. Select the variable/output of previous action
