display a property for references in RPT tests if they were auto or manually generated

I get a lot of tests from customers who've done some manual correlation or perhaps correlation done for them in the course of a PMR.

The test sooner or later may fail to run, so I have to debug it.

When looking at a test I usually look at references by doing Data Correlation -> Show References

I can't tell if a reference was auto generated or created after the test was generated, unless it's a common one like "location_1"

    The feature that is described in this request is currently under development and should be included in a subsequent release.

    A simple workaround is for RPT users to provide meaningful names to manual references.

    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. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
