How to access "item description" metadata?

Hi all,


I was hoping someone could tell me how I can use the ArcGIS Pro SDK to access the item description metadata (abstract/keywords/description etc…) of a feature class?


The example on the Pro Snippets Github page shows how to get a definition object which contains metadata – which I'm doing using the code below:


var featureClass = layer.GetTable() As FeatureClass;

var definition = featureClass.GetDefintion();


But I'm looking at the API page for FeatureClassDefinition – and there doesn't seem to be any way to access the "item description" metadata properties (for example in ArcObjects SDK we used the IMetadata and IXmlPropertySet interfaces).


Can anyone help me out?


Many thanks,
