AW: Option for users to modify a token description

It is just not implemented this way.Setting hashes, sync windows, countauth … and also the description are functions limited to the administrators.
Why? Hm, since the user never was supposed to fiddle with the tokens that much.
Kind regards Cornelius

Betreff: [privacyidea] Option for users to modify a token description

Hello CorneliusCurrently it seems that there’s no option for a user(in user scope) to modify its own token’s description. There’s no such option to enable that in user scope policy.Is it expected to always be that and why?It’d be handy if a user could tag one(software token on a PC) token and another(Google Authenticator mobile token) token differently…
