Replace a previous sonatype finding to a CVE when CVE is available

After a CVE is published for a previous Sonatype finding, currently the CVE is put in description which is not searchable or reportable. Can the CVE number be replaced with the SonaType number or an additional field be added with the CVE number?
The CVE numbers help us to work with WAF vendors as they protect against known CVE and it is easier for us to do a reconcilation.
