Are help strings for workflow inputs in the console UI still supported? I know it used to be possible (I think maybe through imperative workflows or something) but can't seem to find it in the docs.

like when you have a CLI tool, you can do
--help
to see what the arg means.

I guess what @Laura Lin’s referring to is docstring. It should be supported. Aren’t you seeing that on the UI launch form?

@Laura Lin Currently, the UI won’t be updated when you register a workflow. However, you could manually update the description by using flytectl update. we have a pr to automatically update the description when registering. stay tuned.
