Severity: 4-Minor


The interface description can be set in TMOS, but not the UI. Nor can the TMOS-set description be seen in the UI.


There is no clear indicator in the UI of which physical interface maps to which cloud interface. Makes the implementation more prone to configuration errors and it could take longer to troubleshoot service affecting interface failures.


Attempting to view description information about an interface in the UI.


Set the interface description in TMOS.
