Server/Client 8.4.0 (also tested on 8.3.5).

When you create a Job Variable you can assign a value. Here I have used the value "dummy" for the variable testvar:

In the job a Set Job Variable assigns a timestamp to the variable and an SQL task selects the value string (to test the actual value). This works as expected and it is clear that the new value is correctly assigned:

Now if I open the Job Variable and check the value through the job definition the original value ("dummy") is shown (!) and if I click [OK] that value is written to the variable (!!). I would expect to see the current value (the timestamp), and I would certainly not expect the value to be overwritten without an explicit edit:

Output of the SQL task after an explicit task run (after just opening the variable definition an clicking [OK] without edit):

Feature or bug? The above test shows that there are at least two places that stores the value which seems unheathy.
