I want to execute a customized shell script on master to get a value for a variable at the agent side.

you can try custom facts to get details of your agent. Also, it will be better if you explain more clearly what details you wanna get from the agent.

The command to be executed needs an argument which is a value stored in .yaml file, So, the command needs to be executed is: $x=generate("/bin/sh","-c","${jasypt_location}/bin/ input=xxxx password=PrimeHomePassword algorithm=xxxxxx verbose=false"), $x wont have any value after agent run
