RTWW - Option to modify the "value" of properties by "custom value"

This has a major impact on displaying Reports
In RTWW, we have peoperty values that are automatically captured during the recording. How ever these values are not human readable / easily identifyable
Ex: ID PanevarianteiRFlnbG14cTi2MbBWSioW_664-searchField-I.

When this is added into the script, Currently user do not have an option to modify it with a custom ID name Ex: Parentvalue

Because of this, when the script is been executed the un readable value gets into the report and the report become very hard to identify where the issues are happening.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future.

    in this example , i am attaching pictures 2_1 & 2_2 in the attachment
    in 2_1, you can see the full step in RTWW
    in 2_2, this step is completely disaplyed in the report, the issues of displaying are
    1. If there are any invalid values (like pic 4.jpg in the attachment) those end up in the report and makes it hard for the user to understand the report
    2. if the step is longer Ex: if i add more identification properties like "nearby" and "secondary" etc, then it is too longer in the report and occupies more display space.
    In the report , if we can have the line number with script name Ex; Script 1 : Step 2 ; Script 1 : Step 3 and the direct line to the actual step of the script
    ( we already do this in the script level, as "show in test editor" in the mobile and webUI report, if we can extend it to this report then we can standardize our reports look and feel) then it will reduce many complications.
    If we can give a custom way , where user can decide how this line of the step should appear in the report, then it will be easy for organizations to modify the step and get the way they are looking at the reports.

    Step 1: User creates a RTWW script.
    Step 2: When the script is created , it looks like the Picture in the attachment ( Pic 4).
    In this picture user can see the object is verified by the user ID , that has lot of characters.
    Step 3: When user execute this script , this value is displayed in the report that gets generated which makes the report un readable.
    enhancement Requested:
    Currently user is unable to customize the default value displayed by RTWW in the property fields (Ex: ID PanevarianteiRFlnbG14cTi2MbBWSioW_664-searchField-I). If the user can modify / customize the value he will opt for (Ex: ID Panevariant).
    this can help him to track the steps of the testscript.

    This request lacks sufficient information for us to evaluate it. It might not be considered further until it has been revised and clarified.
