Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1025447
Menu bar missing one selection from VM context menu.
Last modified: 2016-04-19 21:29:06 EDT
Description of problem: Context menu for a VM has a selection called console options but menu bar does not. All other selections besides this are duplicated from the context menu to the menu bar. Why would this be singled out and only included on the context menu which makes it hard to find?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): IS19
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 818457 [details]
from looking at the code in MainTabVirtualMachineView.java, it seems to be this way by design (see attachment 818457 [details]).
@Michal - do you recall the reason for that?
just not to clutter the menu bar, since the name is a bit long. The options are reachable via user portal easily so we thought it's better to sacrifice this in favor of screen estate
In terms of relative importance I would think console options might be higher than others already displayed there. Consider using an icon.
I agree with Paul on the importance. But this particular issue depends on adding an infrastructure to support a large amount of buttons in the action-panel, which is tracked via Bug 818051 (marking this BZ as depends on Bug 818051);

icon's a good idea, however normally you should not be actually using the dialog any often, even as an admin
Malini, what's your opinion about the icon/button?
IMHO it's additional options and should not belong to an actions menu
After talking with Eldan decided to add a dropdown menu to the monitor toolbar icon with the console options.
