Description Corey Welton 2010-10-04 11:26:36 EDT
Description of problem:
In the Traits subtab, the data for any resource (group) is already broken out by Trait.  However, each row also has a separate Traits column that matches this breakout.  Probably (?) don't need this column.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create a group of compatible platform (linux servers, for example)
2.  Navigate to Monitoring > Traits subtab
3.  View results.
Actual results:
Data is grouped by trait, and then a separate Traits col. also exists.

Expected results:
Probably don't need this column taking up valuable screen real estate if by definition each item grouped under a specific trait header is going to be the same.

Additional info:
I guess the only value this adds is it allows users to sort ascending/descending by trait type.  But there is probably a better way to handle this in the UI than creating a column of otherwise superfluous information simply to allow a sort.

I haven't checked, but this is probably also the case outside the Groups context (i.e., for a single resource).  It was found while testing group monitoring, however.

As far as I could tell, throughout the traits these match 1:1.  So probably don't need the col., esp. if we can find a better way to provide a sorting mechanism for these traits.

go to the trait view for a group.

Try to "Group by" any column. The data disappears and you can't get it back.
