I searched in all Altium documents but can not find a way to place strings that show a composite text with multiple parameters. What I want to do is something like this:

My parameters:

- BoardVersion = "B"
- BoardRevision = 4

String I want to place in PCB:

BOARD_B4

I mean:
"BOARD_" + .BoardVersion + .BoardRevision

Is that a way?

No the pcb side cannot combine string like the schematics. you could create a dummy component (i.e.) logo and then use the comment string to combine the version and revision and get the string that way into the pcb.

=PCBD_Number+'-'+PCBD_Revision
