The following KB provides the solution for variable editor not rendering the same between a Catalog Task and RITM when using container variables. The behavior occurs with variables in both flow designer and the legacy workflow.
Here are some example screen shots of this behavior
This is a product defect documented in PRB1360518. In flow designer the container variables do not show display in the flow designer activity when configuring the slush bucket to add variables.
Their are two possible solutions to remedy this issue.
- Using variable sets allows users/admin to get around this
- Setting the global field on the variables associated to the catalog item to true will also fix this issue.
