Kindly verify the field type of "TEST2". The field type shouldn't be "Barcode" or "Multiline Text".
The error says it is an invalid filed and rule does not work with "Barcode type fields".
Because the rule CONNECTFIELDS does not work with Barcode type fields or Multiline Text fields.
Field type i have used for both variables as Alphanumeric only....
CONCAT: This is used to concat two or more text strings.
For Example: you have a HDR record and at position 30 you have text "A", at position 40 you have text "B" and at position 50 you have text "C".
In this case when you use CONCAT fields 1,HDR 30,1,40,1,50,1 your output would be A B C
CONNECTFIELDS/ConcatFields: This rule is used to Connect fields that are horizontally alligned.
For Example: I have 3 fields Field_A Field_B Field_C in an image in a row. and when I use Conenct Fields rule, F=Field_A,R=Field_B,R=Field_C. Now I have no data being printed in Field_B in that case the output would be Field_A Field_C
Just give rule name as ConnectField and in data column: F=Field_A,R=Field_B,R=Field_C without any semicolons.
Let me know incase if you have any queries

Please remove the ';' at the end. You need to code just 'F=TEST1,R=TEST2'.
Note: The samples in rule book are not really updated to match studio mode of coding. They are still referring to the DDT concept in prior versions (10.x).

Sometimes small mistake make non-sense but that make sense to learn something always.
Thanks to @Vamsi and @Sruthi for your correct and helpful answer.
Semi colon ( ; ) which i added, that is the mistake i have done in the code..
