A couple of things dont seem to be available any longer in the Savara 2 scenarios:
1. Description attribute on message links. Even with the structured attribute list, it is useful to have free text annotations.
2. Record State and Assert State : While there might be no formalism attached to these, they can be used to annotate (expected) state behaviour and provide more context around the interactions.
Would welcome alternative approaches!
1) Adding a description onto any of the items in the scenario shouldn't be a problem, if you could raise a feature request in jira.
2) The issue with the old record/assert was how to reference a particular variable - especially if there are sub-scopes etc. Best thing may be to outline your requirements in a jira so an appropriate solution can be discussed.
