Does netplan have a field to define an alias (which is generally used for interface descriptions)?
As per https://netplan.io/reference
- This selects a subset of available physical devices by various hardware properties. The following configuration will then apply to all matching devices, as soon as they appear. All specified properties must match.
- Device’s MAC address in the form “XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX”. Globs are not allowed.
- When matching on unique properties such as path or MAC, or with additional assumptions such as “there will only ever be one wifi device”, match rules can be written so that they only match one device. Then this property can be used to give that device a more specific/desirable/nicer name than the default from udev’s ifnames. Any additional device that satisfies the match rules will then fail to get renamed and keep the original kernel name (and dmesg will show an error).
