AEP Schemas: allow editing of descriptions


Community Advisor


Description - Schemas that are in use by datasets cannot be edited directly. This contradicts https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-platform/xdm/schema/composition.html?lang=en#evol... .

Why is this feature important to you - Descriptions add human-readable metadata about what the schema is. While the schema might not change, including its name, there could be some wordings in the descriptions that need to be updated from time to time.

How would you like the feature to work - Allow editing of descriptions directly, as expected.

Current Behaviour - Schema descriptions cannot be updated without temporarily changing the schema name too, i.e.

  1. Edit the schema.
  2. Change the schema's name.
  3. Update the schema's description.
  4. Save the schema.
  5. Edit that same schema.
  6. Revert the schema's name to its original name.
  7. Save the schema.

Notice the additional extra steps needed.
