App's description is not visible anywhere within the API manager

hi, we have found an issue with the Developer portal of API connect service. so here is the issue:

1. A member from the developer organization creates an App. While creating the App, he/she provides few information in the App creation form such as App's name, App's  description,  OAuth Redirect URI and so one. 

2. After the App is created from the Developer portal, he/she send an API subscription request to provider organisation. 

3. But, the problem is,  it seems the description field of the App is not visible from any where within the API manager. 


I raised a support ticket for this.  And I have been informed that, right now, there is no way to view description field in API Manager unfortunately. 


I have also been advised to open an enhancement request through the ideas portal. 


hope, it will be resolved shortly. 


thank you in advanced.
