Updating Column Metadata: API vs. UI Sync Issues

Original Slack Thread

Hi, I am updating column metadata such as column description, tags, terms using API (EditableSchemaMetadataClass) which works fine. Is there a way to update or overwrite column metadata from UI that was created from API and vice versa ?

Hi - not really sure i understand correctly, but you can always change the aspects on UI like this.

I guess the problem we are facing is that when we create column description using API, the description can no longer be updated from UI and if a description was created or edited from UI, they cannot be updated from API. In our usecase, we also want the column description that was edited from UI to be overwritten through API
