[Usability] Cannot change role in messaging security settings
Last modified: 2015-06-23 08:50:13 EDT
Description of problem:
In Profile -> Messaging -> Destinations -> Security Settings, if I want to change role for the address, I have to delete the settings for the old role and create new for the new role, even if I wanted same settings. It would be nice if I could just change the role in edit mode for the address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In agreement with Catherine we've decided that UX issues will be tracked separately.
Moving to 6.4 as the issue is still valid for 6.3
It might be worth to reconsider whether this should be marked as usability issue. Currently console more or less mirrors management model and CLI -- it is not possible to edit "role" because rather than an attribute it is a child resource of Security Setting. Thus changing it is effectively the same as removing the old one and creating a new role with desired changes.
The question is whether we want resource structure to look different in console then in CLI. Although Similar behavior is implemented for RBAC role mappings, it make more sense there as the entire role configuration is orthogonal to model (user centered vs role centered).
Expect to fix this with EAP 7 redesigns.
