Error description

  • n RIT, when we 'overwrite expected message', the caching
    involved in
    the background is lost ,say a value A is stored in a variable in
    step 1
    and the same variable is called in next step 2 using a tag. This
    means
    that declaration of a variable part is lost,due to which test
    cases
    fail.
    
    Steps to reproduce :
    
    Open the project WellsFargoTags
    Open the test case Add2then3then4
    Run the test case , it will  pass
    Now in the console , click on first Recieve Reply message
    Click on Overwrite Expected message option
    Save on closure
    Rerun the test , it fails as the tag "Result" is removed from
    the reply message
    Recreate  tag by quick tagging the  "Result" field it will  pass
    again
    Note that "Overwrite expected Field does not cause this issue"
