If I rename a data element in Adobe DTM, will I then need to find all the instances of previous usage of that data element, and update the name, or will Adobe DTM do that for me?

Yes, If a data is renamed, you will need to update the name in all rules, tools, and scripts that reference the old name.

Thanks for the confirmation. When I try to delete a Data Element that's been used somewhere, I get a warning dialog, so I thought maybe refactoring would be detected as well.
