Octopus v4.1.1

On a project create a Project variable template with a control type = 'Sensitive/password box' with no default value.
Connect this project to a Tenant.
On the Tenant's variable entry screen, no error tile is displayed for the required Sensitive/password box. (other variables that are required do display with an error indicating the value is required for deployment).
Expected an error message to be displayed indicating the variable is required.
NOTE: While trying to start a deployment it will error and tell you the variable name when attempting to deploy, which is good, but I would expect to catch this sooner by visually flagging it on the field level to know what field is missing a value

Also interesting: On a Tenant's variable entry screen, for the Sensitive/password box variable template control type, if you click the Remove button/trash can to remove the field value and Save changes, the control goes back to looking like it still has a value.
