Angular deformation

I have modelled a composite shaft with 15 layers of glass fiber and applied a torque of 400Nm  on one end with fixity at the other end. I have done the same modelling in APDL  and I have obtained an angular deformation of about 0.1202rad. But in workbench(ACP) I am not getting the result correctly? Also I would like to know how to extract angular deformation in workbench?

Use a Flexible Rotation Probe on the edge.

I am not getting how to use the flexible rotation probe. If you have any resources or examples regarding the same would help a lot.

What I came to know through internet is along with flexible rotation probe, few APDL commands should also be used to extract angular rotation. Is it the case, that should we use flexible rotation command?

Any resources or video regarding the same will be of greatest help.
