In a release definition, I set Release name format value with :Release-$(Release.ReleaseDescription)-$(rev:r)
I got this: The $(Release.ReleaseDescription) could not be recognized in the top Release Definition Name /Release Name. But it was recognized in RELEASE_RELEASENAME.

Not all variables available for deployments can be used in release names.
The set of supported variables that can be used in the release name format mask is mentioned at https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/build/concepts/definitions/release/index#numbering.
Release.ReleaseDescription is not one of the supported variables in release names.
We've added a bug on our side to ensure the release name displayed in the task logs is same as the one actually generated using the release name format.
