Description of problem:
This RFE is extension to existing Bug 922377 - Allow edit running VM.
Please add a list of all properties that were changed, and will be implemented on VM next boot.
It should be seen, when pressing OK, for Edit VM, which changes that will be implemented on next boot.
This list should be hidden:
- in order to avoid exposing this information in case it is not required,
- in case this list might be very log.
The list naming should be understandable to the user.
That is it should be the same fields displayed in the edit VM window,
or at least there should have understandable linkage between the names in the list and the names in the edit VM window.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhevm /ovirt 3.5
I'm considering it a required addition to the "edit running vm feature", without it it is very confusing to understand what has changed (more importantly it can hide bugs we see from time to time where we by mistake change fields without the user knowing)
at least a code names would help to understand something has changed
this bug status was moved to MODIFIED before engine vt5 was built,
hence moving to on_qa, if this was mistake and the fix isn't in,
please contact email@example.com
Tested on vt5 & vt6.
There is a list indeed of code names of the parameters that were changed.
But, I see here 2 problems:
1. Not always do the code names are clear to user.
For example, edit vm -> mark 'start running on specific host:' checkbox,
will display this parameter was changed:
2. For cpu hot plug, the cpu sockets is listed under the changes that will start after next boot, though I DO NOT choose 'Apply later' checkbox, for the cpu changes. Since at that stage, it is unknown to the system, whether the user will choose or not the 'Apply later' checkbox.
Is there something can be done to improve these 2?
Moving this bug to verified since the list of changed fields was added.
For the issues detailed in comment #3, a separate bug will be opened.
RHEV-M 3.5.0 has been released
