Reference variables have a default value. When the variable initially loads, a hint will appear. However, the hint does not update when the variable is changed.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Impersonate the system administrator user.

  2. Edit an existing catalog item.

  3. Add a reference variable for the user, using the default value javascript:gs.getUserID();.

  4. Try the item.

  5. Hover over the value.

    The correct hint is displayed.

  6. Change the variable to another user (for example, Abel Tuter).

  7. Hover over the value.

    The hint still shows the previous user.

    Note that if no default value is set, the hint does not appear.
