how to setup LPC_INMUX to feed external input to SCT?

LPC824, LPCXpresso 7.9.0, LPC Xpresso V2/MBED board.

The SCT state machine (SM) I am making, has a pin-input (SW1 button PIO0_04) and an output to the LED (green act low PIO0_16).
The SM should simply monitor SW1 and generate a light flash of programmable duration for each falling edge on SW1 - a one-shot in essence.
It does not work - the SCT does not see the SW1, judging from the debugger. The SW1 is working, I can detect by GPIO check.

In the debug->peripherals->SCT->INPUT I can observe the state of the input(s) - they all remain 0 all time. Why?

Here is what I think must be the essential code part:
void app_setup_pin(void)
/* Enable SWM clock before altering SWM */
Chip_GPIO_SetPinDIR(LPC_GPIO_PORT, 0, 4, false);//Push botton SW1 = PIO0_04
Chip_GPIO_SetPinDIR(LPC_GPIO_PORT, 0, 16, true);//green led act low = PIO0_16
/* Connect SCT input 0 to SW1 pin PIO0_04 */
Chip_SWM_DisableFixedPin(SWM_FIXED_ADC11);//PIO_04 disable
Chip_SWM_MovablePinAssign(SWM_SCT_IN0_I, 4);//=SW1=Wake texted
/* Connect SCT output 0 to LED pin PIO_16 */
Chip_SWM_MovablePinAssign(SWM_SCT_OUT0_O, 16);//12=Red, 16=Green, 27=Blue

A note about LPC_INMUX: In the debugger->peripherals->INPUTMUX[LPS824]. After running this code and halting in the __WFI() the debugger->peripherals->INPUTMUX[LPS824]->SCT0-INMUX0->INP-N has changed from UNKNOWN(0xF) to SCT_IN0_CHANGE_THE <<- Now that's a weird text, and it continues:

Hovering over the name SCT_IN0_CHANGE_THE gives a text.
SCT_IN0 change the name since this is not the function sct_in0 but the first selection for sct input in the mux. in fact it could be functionally sct_in3(input 3 of the sct). Assign to pin using the switch matix"

What does that try to explain me?
What could be a likely reason I cannot see changes in debug->peripherals->SCT->INPUT field.

Thanks for any help - this problem has bugged me for days now!
