Variables REST API is missing the description field

Hi! I understand the Variables REST API is still in beta at the moment, but I was somehow expecting to get the same kind of information as in the Plugin API. I guess those are not developed in parallel?

The field I’m missing from the REST schema is the variable description field (Variable | Plugin API) that we use to pass freetext information.

Is that planned in an upcoming release?

Yes, we’re working on this.


Thanks for the quick update James!
Any idea for an ETA? Even a vague one, so I know whether I should investigate a temporary solution or just be patient.

Should be within a couple weeks.


Thanks again James!

Following up, the API changes for “description” are out, and the REST API documentation should be updated tomorrow.
