Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, a new window would be opened for downloading Virt Viewer when a user connected to the console of a virtual machine from the User Portal and Virt Viewer had to be downloaded. With this update, Virt Viewer is now downloaded in the same window or tab without creating any additional pop-ups or windows.

Description David Jaša 2013-11-05 14:13:33 UTC
Description of problem:
The purpose of popping up a new window for .vv file download is AFAIK ability to open consoles to multiple VMs at the same time. User portal is not capable of doing this however so a pop-up is just a nuisance for users because it requires them to enable pop-ups to make the "Native client" actually work (at least with Firefox) or it causes User Portal reload (IE8/XP).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
is21 / rhevm-userportal-3.3.0-0.31.beta1.el6ev.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up console to "Native client" in User Portal
2. click Console

Actual results:
.vv file download is offered in a pop-up window

Expected results:
.vv file is offered from base User Portal window

Additional info:
3.2 UP doesn't spawn pop-up --> Regression

not a blocker IMO, but worth a fix - do this only for 2+ VMs

Verified upstream in ovirt-engine-3.4.0-0.7.beta2.el6.noarch.

Verification steps:
1. Have a running VM with SPICE/VNC console, "Native Client" invocation set in Console Options.
2. Click the Console button.

The console.vv file download is invoked in the same window/tab, no other pop-ups/windows are opened.

Clients used:
Firefox 24 ESR @ RHEL 6.5
IE 9 @ Windows 7
