2867002 - Adhoc reporting does not display descriptions


Report-Table descriptions are only visible within the Edit view within Report Center.   Report-table descriptions can be used to describe the purpose of the query.


Report Center - Report-Table

Reproducing the Issue

  • Access report center
  • Create a Report-Table query by selecting "New" and "Report-Table"
  • Select domain type
  • Under the General Info section, the description section can be used 


Report-table descriptions are only visible within the Edit view as it's meant for Reporting admins to understand the type of query that is being created. Descriptions will not be displayed outside of the Edit view.


The recommended work around would be to create a Report-canvas component and use the text component for description which will be visible to all users who run the report.
