[ja_JP] [es_ES] [it_IT] Satellite 5.6.0 QA Contents mislocated "Master Setup" vs"Slave Setup"
Last modified: 2015-01-13 04:45:21 EST
Description of problem:
Descriptions under the "Master Setup" sub-tab and those under the "Slave Setup" sub-tab might be opposite to each other. For example, on the ISS Configuration-Master Setup page, there is a description "Below are the slaves that are XXX, and the list of "Known Slave Instances" follows.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on Admin tab.
2.Click on ISS Configuration on the left pane.
3.Click on Master Setup and Slave Setup respectively.
Descriptions under the "Master Setup" sub-tab are about Slave setup while those under the "Slave Setup" sub-tab are about "Master Setup".
On the ISS Configuration-Master Setup page, there is a description "Below are the slaves that are ..., and the list of "Known Slave Instances" follows, but these contents should be under "Slave Setup" and the contents under "Slave Setup" should move under "Master Setup."
Please refer to the attached screen shot for more details.

Okay, I absolutely agree that this is confusing. However I think it is still correct as-is.
The "Master Setup" tab is where you go to set up this Satellite as a master, which means configuring the slaves that connect to it and the access they have.
The "Slave Setup" tab is where you go to set up this Satellite as a slave, which means configuring which master you want to connect to.
So I think the current naming is more correct than if the tab names were switched. However, given that this is confusing to many people who see it, I agree that there is room for improvement. Do you have a Suggestion as to what the tab names should be to make the situation more clear?
It might easier to understand if the page shows which Satellite is selected as a master, and if it clarifies which instance is the master, for example changing the message "Below are the slaves that are allowed to synchronize content from this Red Hat Satellite instance." to "Below are the slaves that are allowed to synchronize content from this master Red Hat Satellite instance."
Please let me know if my understanding is not correct.
A fine idea. Implemented in Spacewalk master:
