Problem deleting variables from job in Workflow

We are creating variables in a JOBS which it can be used and edited in the Workflow (JOBP)
However, if we delete them  from the Job, They still appear in the variable tab of the Workflow.


Release : 12.3

Component : AWI


The behavior is expected:

When you create a Variable inside a JOBS this Variable is a property of the JOBS.

Now, when the JOBS is integrated in a JOBP, it becomes a Task. When subsequently, you change the value of the Variable inside this Task, the Variable and its values become a property of the JOBP. The properties are stored in a table that belongs to JOBPs. So even if you delete the Variable from the JOBS, it is still part of the JOBP.

To remove these Task/JOBP properties, you have to remove the Task from the JOBP and add it again. This is inconvenient but the only option.
