Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open the System Settings landing page and select the System Name tab.
  2. Click on the node name in the table.
  3. Edit the "Node description" field and save the record.
  4. Refresh the System Name tab on the System Settings landing page.

Root Cause

The node description displayed on the System Name tab corresponds to the short description of the node, not the "Node description" field on the form.  


To change the node description displayed on the System Name tab, open the System Node form and click on the short description displayed in the rule header to modify the value.
