Learn English – Word request: A word meaning “self-describing” or “true to its name”


I am writing an operational manual for a software development team. The manual contains the communication methods used to share status in case of a systematic problem.

The main communication methods is Slack channels, each having a name like emergency-database-events or public-status-notifications.

I'd like to find an adjective which means "the channel contains what it name says". It is analogous to the eponymous, but instead of naming something after a person, it is naming something in a fashion that describes its nature.
