Description Fabien Dupont 2016-08-31 11:58:36 UTC
Description of problem:
When creating a dialog field, one can specify a validation method. Currently only regex is supported. It would be great to call an automate method. An example: create a 'vm_name' field and check the name is available.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.6.1

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a dialog field in a custom dialog

Actual results: One can only select regex as validation method

Expected results: One can select an automate method (instance)

This can be accomplished by having a dynamic check-box 'validation' that reads X other dialog fields and performs the all validations in a single method. Such dynamic check-box will be 'required' and 'read-only'.

I am not sure this RFE is actually needed.

Well, it doesn't validate each field independently and it also adds a field to the dialog. Not very user-friendly in my opinion.
