Merged idea
This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit RBF-I-123 RTWW - Add data to DataPool, while creating a data pool reference.

RTWW - DP variables need to be "explicity" marked in the script Merged

Currently in RTWW, when user maps a value in the script to a DP variable. It is not been displayed / updated in the script.
Ex: in the attached screenshot, David is been mapped to a DP varible
However when a tester view the script, he is left with an impression that David is been selected for the passenger. However in reality the data is coming from the DP, where there are multiple users.

It would be easy to review the testscript, if the DP fields are differentiated from the other fields. Comparing the same with RFT, in RFT, it is clearly marked as dpString("richTextBox1").

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.
    Will investigate colour coding the test step itself.
