Issue:
Scenario:

Create a VARA object, e.g. a static VARA was used:
 
User-added image

In the Home perspective, create a Dashboard and add an Analytics Widget of type VARA to Chart :
 
User-added image

Click Configure Widget and add the VARA object created in step (1)  as Data source:
 
User-added image

Save the Dashboard and close the editor. Switch back to the Process Assembly perspective and rename the VARA object. There comes no "search for use" dialog nor any other warning that the VARA is already used in an object. The VARA is just renamed:
 
User-added image

Go back to Dashboard. It is empty now, as the VARA is not found anymore under the old name:
 
User-added image
Cause:
The case is still under investigation by CA development.
Resolution:
Workaround: After renaming the Vara, the widget has to be edited and the renamed VARA has to be added.
