CDM Json Model

When building a dataflow you can create a json model to define the cdm.  The documents can be found here.


It says you can define the "description" of the "attributes" along with name and datatype.  I can set the name and datatype just fine but when I define a description nothing happens.  I expected to see it in the description in the model, but nothing!  Am I doing something wrong?  Is the description not working?  Does it not show up in the model, if not what is the purpose of adding a description?

You should able to see the description, please make sure there is no typo in the code.



I am pretty confident it is spelled correctly. Do you see a spelling error? "description":"test".  Again everything else works just fine there is just NO description showing up.
