Status Planned for future release

Display description with enabling line feed, or enable to write with rich text

Problem statement/pain point:

In the panel for individual asset, we have description section in left side panel most upper item.

Description section shows max 300 character description for the asset. In this customer use case, in order to streamline the determination of reusability, we established rules to write 3 items in description

  1. Overview of the asset
  2. Scenario of reuse
  3. Data volume and refresh cycle (in case of data asset)

These description text include line feed(e.g.1.xxxx line feed 2.xxxx line feed…), so we expect it to appear on a new line, but in present description section not on a new line.(In Edit mode, on a new line, but after apply not on a new line)

This description will be very difficult to read. Example is in below.

1.Call Center speech log, include speech ID, reference documents, inquiry date and user evaluation flag. 2. Reuse for sample log data of typical question and answer type AI, such as build AI monitoring task 3.Data volume and refresh cycle: 50000 recorded in per month and upload by project

This description will be expected to shown in below.

1.Call Center speech log, include speech ID, reference documents, inquiry date and user evaluation flag.

2.Reuse for sample log data of typical question and answer type AI, such as build AI monitoring task

3.Data volume and refresh cycle: 50000 recorded in per month and upload by project

No workaround in now.

Proposed solution:

Display description with enabling line feed, or enable write with rich text to improve expression of description.

benefits/value:

Easy to read and containing more rich information about the assets in description

# of users impacted and how often are they impacted:

For this instance, from several to ten users, and always impacted in now, but this use case is trial, impacted user will be growth in near future.

Also this function will be impact to decision to renew or stop Watson Knowledge Catalog Standard plan which is purchased in now.
