Hi Nils! I’m lead the product group for event automation here at PagerDuty. Thanks for the request.
Great point. I’ve also occasionally forgotten why I created a particular rule, and a description might help with that!
At the moment we’re looking at a few different ways to improve rule creation and editing. I don’t have a specific ETA for rule descriptions, but I can tell you it’s something other customers have asked for and something we’re considering for development at some point.
If you have any more context about the problems you’re solving with event rules, you can shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. If it’s okay with you, we can also reach out if/when we prioritize this so you can be one of the first folks to try it out.
