Hello Bryan,

The Description field in the Field Settings can be found in the LongDescription field of the Yellowfin repository.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,

David

Hi Bryan,

Here is the complete SQL query from updating the Description. I was able to get this by turning on Debug logging, making the change, and then reviewing the logs.

"YF:2022-06-15 15:19:27.171:DEBUG (ReportFieldTemplateManager) - [57] [B90BEC6D] [/MIViewFieldsAjax.i4] ReportFieldTemplate UPDATE SQL:

WHERE FieldTemplateId = 106419"

I hope that helps.

Please let me know if there is any more information I can get you.

Have a great day,
