If you create a job with a step that has an on-success action of going to a non-existent step, when you view the job in SSMS it incorrectly shows the step's on-success action to "Go to the next step".
This is applicable to SSMS in SQL Server 2012 SP2 and 2014CTP2.

I would expect it to show the success action as pointing to an invalid step, or just the step number. Showing it going to the next step is incorrect.

We've triaged this issue and do not plan to implement a change at this time.
