The issue is to be addressed in a future release.

Valid workarounds are as follows:

1) Values will exist in this drop-down as long as the ec-alert_variable table contains data. You can scroll through the values in this drop-down to obtain the desired string.

2) You can delete and retype last string after paste, then the rule can by saved without error.
