Display Value fields in the same form will conflict if the referenced fields have the same name/label, even if these fields have unique IDs.

Steps to reproduce
1. In activiti-app via App Designer->Apps import the attached app 'Field Names Conflict App.zip'.
2. Via App Designer->Processes open the process 'Test Form Field Names Conflict' in Visual Editor and validate the process

Expected Behaviour
As referenced fields have unique IDs, process should validate fine.

Observed Behaviour
There is a validation error "Given field id is not unique" although the IDs of the fields to display are unique

Supporting evidence

  • Reproduced with current latest APS 1.8.1 release
  • Issue seems to be, that the ID for the display value fields cannot be configured but seems to be autogenerated base don the label of the text field to display
  • We have an enhancement request to make display value field IDs configurable: MNT-19648 This request would be required to address the issue reported in this JIRA.
