    I think point 2 is refresh issue, we can track using TS016698274. and keep this one for point 1.

    For point 1.
    When auto generated credential is created, by default only name is displayed. And when user click on edit, that windows show description same as name. I think user think description should be empty. As we are not showing it when create the credential, then we will not show even if user click edit and do not change description.

    Thank you for submitting this request. Will split this into two different items:

    1. When creating the Application the workflow generates initial application credentials with an auto-generated name/summary. If they modify the Summary text from the auto-generated value to something more meaningful it will be rendered in the UI the same way as well clicking the 'Add' in the Credentials section of the Application. Is there a reason they would like the auto-generated summary to be displayed as it is just a duplicate string of the Credential name?

    2. Refresh/Sort Order - We will look into this behavior as this was able to be easily replicated in our environment.
