Alerting with $field$ and conf.spec


I'm working with a custom TA, AlertAction_SFTP, that has the following .conf.spec file.


param.sftp_server = <string>
param.sftp_user = <string>
param.sftp_rfile = <string>
param.sftp_key = <string>
param.ssh_key_dir = <string>
param.sftp_password = <string>


When I try to use $date$ in the file name, filename-$date$, I get "Remote path is invalid."  I've tried multiple ways of doing this including adding date to my search


index=vuln sourcetype="qualys:hostDetection" signature="SMB Version 1 Enabled" TAGS="*Server*" earliest=-1d@d latest=@d
| eval date=strftime(relative_time(now(), "-1d@d"), "%Y-%m-%d")
| table date, *


I've tried $results.date$, $date$, and a couple of other things.  Is there some reason that the rfile path must not use a Spunk variable?
