Additional Formatting in Asset Properties

We are putting code values into the a custom attribute called valid values. The code and description do not line up correctly. Tabluar format with bolded headings would be ideal.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? As a consumer of data, i would like to see valid values for a field in an organized manner.
How should it work?

Proposing the allowance of storing data in a tabular format inside of the property of any information asset/glossary asset.

Allow for html markup to control all of the text inside the property of an asset.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Anything that is stored in a tabular just doesnt translate well when putting in the tool.
Customer Name AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company (US)

    Hi Susanna,

    I think i made a mistake. I have submitted this for Infosphere Information Server Information Governance Catalog. What i am describing is that in the properties of an asset in IGC everything is in plain text format so when you save the property it throws off all the spacing.

    This makes it cumbersome to store information that would otherwise be in a tabular format.

    Like in my example.

    A code and its description.

    Hence i see it beneficial to be able to store property information in a tabular manner or to use html markup to format the data in the property field.

    Please let me know if this is correct.

    Hi Hernando, are you referring to the Details section of, say a business term, where we list the custom attributes? I don't know what you mean by "The code and description do not line up correctly. ".
