Can I use the C++ Enum in AI BT Blackboard?

I have an ENUM definded in C++'s code
and it’s usable in Blueprints

UENUM(BlueprintType)
enum class NPCState : uint8{
	Patrolling UMETA(DisplayName = "Patrolling"),
	Alerted UMETA(DisplayName = "Alerted"),
};

I am able to use it in blueprints with no problem, however I cannot use it as a Blackboard enum value, is there any way to do this ?

You can use it by typing its name into the Enum Name text box of the blackboard details panel and pressing enter.

Many thanks, this is helpful!

It shows up in every other list. Silly of us to expect it in that one. Sometimes… I mean…
Thanks for the info.
