To help you identify structured data issues more effectively, starting tomorrow Search Console is adding more context to its error reporting.
For example, if a website doesn’t provide the name of the author in
Review snippet markup, Search Console currently reports an error named Missing field “name”. Starting today, that error will be named Missing field “name” (in “author”). The more detailed context in parenthesis can help you find the issues more easily in your structured data.
Missing field "name"issue in the example above).
Missing field "name" (in "author"). To avoid overloading Search Console users with emails, we won’t send notifications on the creation of these new issues.
Please note that if you requested Search Console to validate a fix before the change, you will need to revalidate the new issues.
In summary, this is simply a change in the issue name, it will not affect how Search Console detects errors, and all the issues that are being closed will be replaced by a new issue with the additional context in the issue name.
