Snowflake and Metabase table and column descriptions are not in sync

I have column and table descriptions in Snowflake, but when I update them, they won't get updated in Metabase.

Looking in the logs I do find some entries like INFO metabase.sync.sync-metadata.tables Updating description for tables: but it's still the very first version of descriptions visible in Metabase.

Can I somehow re-trigger a descriptions sync?

Hi @wanda
Currently Metabase doesn't know the difference between automatic synced information and user defined, so to avoid overwriting user defined information, then the description is not updated again via sync: - upvote by clicking :+1: on the first post
