IBM Turbonomic ARM

Showing 122

Add a description field of at least 256 characters to Groups and Policies to allow for annotation of when and why they were created for and what other objects they correspond to.

Just as this description field is used in this idea submission, a description field in the Groups and Policies will allow us to tag them with metadata that will be useful in remembering when and why we created them.
