Discovered Description for Views option

 Please provide a configuration option to make the DB_TABLES.TABLE_COMMENT for views appear in Discovered Description like it does for tables instead of in Technical Annotation.

7 - Meteor

It will be consistent and helpful if we have "Discovered Description" for both Tables and Views. It will also avoids confusion. Please make it Priority

Hi @hroderick-thr ,


sorry for the inconvenience, this should obviously be already present in Connect and we will try to implement your request in an upcoming release. 

I'm putting this into Accepted for now. 

Thank you,

Setting this to Coming soon as we expect this to be part of an upcoming release.
