A comment field for rules - is there a method to do this?

I have a need to tag comments to individual rules on Access Control policies.  Is there a method to do this?  This is mainly regarding VPN Tunneling Access Control policies.

There obviously is not a built-in comments field that I can see, but curious if anyone has found an alternative way to do this.  Any thoughts or ideas?  Even if I could flag a comment in the Resource or IPv6 resource field, that would be useful.  But the syntax obviously doesn't seems to allow that Smiley Happy

 

A comments field on each rule would give me the ability to add change control numbers or general comments on the reason for the rule.  I would like to get rid of a separately maintained spreadsheet for change tracking, but without the ability to have comments stored on the PCS device, this is a challenge.  Anyways, figured I would see if others could related to my issue and had a solution.  Thanks!

You can use the description field in each ACL entry to put that
Will that work?

Hey, thanks for the reply.  Since I'm using the "Detailed Rules" option for each VPN tunneling access control policy, unfortunately there is not a description field available for each rule in these policies.  There is a description field for the policy itself, but not the rules.  In more recent code versions, the the FQDN field was added for each rule to allow based on FQDN -- but what we need to be added next is a comments field! Oh that would be nice to have a comment field available for each rule.  Come on Pulse, add that functionality to the next code version! Smiley Happy
