Gateway Migration Utility/restMan Bundles don't copy CWP comments and policies folders changes

Hi team,

I am intensively using GMU (gateway migration utility) on API Gateway 9.3 and restMan to transfer policies across instances of the API gateway (DEV to ITG or PRO...)

Although most of the objects are properly transferred I ran into two glitches that I found annoying

  • when moving a policy from one folder to a different folder on the source environment, I am not sure that there is a convenient way to create a bundle that would instruct GMU or RestMan to actually perform the same move on the target environment, even though the folders are indeed correctly created if they don't exist.
  • The description section of custom cluster wide properties is not copied over, and there does not seem to be a way to put that description in the cluster wide property template. Although not critical, this is cumbersome as CWPs are used to adjust the behavior of the policies on each environment, therefore having recommendations as to what each property is used for and what values it should take can be useful, especially whan you have taken the time to document this in the Development environment


Did others run into the same issues and found a way to address  them ?
