Renaming variable does not respect scope limitation


Renaming a variable changes the name in all instances in the xaml, even if it’s actually a different variable.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open attached workflow.
    RenamingScopeError.xaml (6.5 KB)

  2. Select FirstScope or SecondScope.

  3. Go to Variables pane.

  4. Rename myVariable to something else.

  5. myVariable in both FirstScope and SecondScope gets changed, leading to validation errors in the other scope.

Current Behavior:

All instances of myVariable gets changed.

Expected Behavior:

Only instances in myVariables scope should be changed.
