+# Profile Parameter Comparison / Management 
+## Problem Description
+*What* is being asked for?
+*Why* is this necessary?
+*How* will this be used?
+As an operations user, I need the ability to easily compare parameters across 
2 profiles and easily add or remove parameters from each profile. Currently in 
Traffic Portal, you can compare 2 profiles but it simply involves a comparison 
of the JSON returned from calls to GET /api/profiles/:profileid_1 and GET 
/api/profiles/:profileid_2. Any reconciliation of the 2 profiles would involve 
manually noting the differences and then navigating to either profile and 
making the necessary changes. This is not the best user experience. It is 
time-consuming and is prone to error.
+## Proposed Change
+*How* will this be implemented (at a high level)?
+The current view in Traffic Portal 
(https://tp.domain.com/#!/profiles/compare/:profile_id_1/:profile_id_2) can be 
redesigned to list a superset of all parameters across the 2 profiles and show 
their profile membership side-by-side. It can also provide the ability to 
remove or add parameters to each profile easily and allow the user to persist 
the final state of both profiles (or reset to the original state). As the user 
makes changes, a visible indicater can be provided (i.e. red checkboxes) to 
show what has been changed.

 Review comment:
   nit: alt text on images should be meaningful. You can probably just re-use 
the title
