Not sure if this is an old bug or something recent, but we’re seeing odd behavior in the Variables UI. When typing in a new variable and hitting the Enter key, it seems that it automatically saves the new variable without ever giving a chance to fill out the value or scoping. This seems undesirable. Here’s a video demonstrating: https://octopususergroup.slack.com/files/U8ACQKLCT/FBASMAQ2X/octopusvariablesavingbug.mp4
What makes it more painful is that the variable UI only shows a certain number of variables in the viewport. So if you enter a variable name that’s alphabetically outside the bounds of what’s displayed, you won’t even see/noticed that it was actually saved unless you happen to scroll that variable into view. That’s the situation that happened to our dev. And the variable was entered with a typo.
At the very least, some sort of server option to “Save when
Enter is pressed” would be cool.
