How To Pass arguments to LUA from HAProxy config. I am trying to pass certificate DN information for client and CA, but getting error in haproxy config check.

HAProxy LUA config

global
    lua-load /usr/sbin/lua-choose-backend.lua

  frontend http-in
    mode http

    log-format %ci:%cp\ [%t]\ %ft\ %b/%s\ %Tq/%Tw/%Tc/%Tr/%Tt\ %ST\ %B\ %CC\ %CS\ %tsc\ %ac/%fc/%bc/%sc/%rc\ %sq/%bq\ %hr\ %hs\ {%[ssl_c_verify],%{+Q}[ssl_c_s_dn],%{+Q}[ssl_c_i_dn]}\ %{+Q}r


    bind *:443 ssl crt /etc/haproxy/server.pem ca-file /etc/haproxy/ca.crt verify required

    use_backend %[lua.choose_backend([ssl_c_s_dn], [ssl_c_i_dn])]
    #use_backend app
    default_backend app
    reqadd X-Forwarded-Proto:\ https if { ssl_fc }
    option forwardfor

.

/usr/sbin/lua-choose-backend.lua

function choose_backend(txn, arg1, arg2)
        core.log(core.info, "Hello World")
        core.log(core.info, arg1)
        core.log(core.info, arg2)

        return "app"
end

core.register_fetches("choose_backend", choose_backend)

.

$ haproxy -c -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg
