Can we have Display As strings able to apply to Resource Type names in AMS/CMDB/SMP?

Dear Symantec,

The Display As strings translation table applies to everything in the CMDB, but does not apply to Resource Types.

An example of this is the "Cell Phone" resource type. In the USA, this is not an issue. However, in the UK, it is an issue as Cell Phones might be those that are used in a prison and we use the expression, "Mobile Phone".

In AMS/CMDB/SMP  7.1 SP1 and below, you could rename the "Cell Phone" resource type and the Display As string table worked with everything else. However, in SMP 7.1, you cannot rename the Resource Type and Display As does not work on those as well!

So, can we have Display As strings able to apply to Resource Type names in AMS/CMDB/SMP?

Kindest regards,
