Connecting Attributes

I'm using 2016.1 and when I try to connect an attribute to my rule file, I am unable to make the connection unless my parameter has an identical name to the attribute that I am trying to map. From my understanding, I should be able to select any alternate layer and attribute name and map it to my shape. Does anybody know why this is happening, or how to get around this issue? Is this a bug? See images attached:


Here I'm creating a basic extrusion with attr height, and I want to connect attribute Z_Max, but I don't have the ability to do so:


I've now changed my rule file to name the attribute Z_Max, which matches my object attribute that I've imported in the shapefile. Now I have the ability to map Z_Max, as well as any other attribute that's available in my scene.
