Sorting in My Subscription tab on Quantity
Description of problem:
Sorting columns in My subscription tab on Quantity is ambiguous. Not only do the subscriptions (parents) get sorted but also the stacked (children) quantities; which may be the expected behavior.
If the Parent subscriptions are being sorted it is not clear on what criteria. This can be seen from the attachment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# subscription-manager version
server type: Red Hat Subscription Management
subscription management server: 0.8.28-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit facts so that subscriptions can be stacked
2. Stack different subscriptions from different group
3. Play with quantity header in My Subscription tab to sort them
It doesn't make sense to me why we are sorting on quantity in the first place when we have ignore it in "Contract Selection Window" and "All Available Subscriptions" tab. So I would prefer sorting on quantity be removed entirely.
If opted to retain this feature then it should be sorted in a better way as I find this to be confusing/ambiguous.
This appears to be working as intended. it sorts by quantity on root rows first, which is empty string when there is a stack header. The child rows are sorted properly in that case, so I don't think there's a problem, or a better way we could do this. We do not ever want to break apart stacks.
