Ori - It doesn't look like the attachment is working, would you mind reattaching?

Seems as though the attachment is OK, is was just uploaded with the wrong mime type (patch instead of zip), so bugzilla doesn't recognize it properly.

Comment 4 Daniel Erez 2014-08-05 13:13:36 UTC
Hi Liz,

iiuc, the issue here is in the indication of disks that are currently being previewed. Currently, a previewed snapshot can be identified by the 'Preview Mode' string under its description. In case of custom preview, that string is added to the VM configuration snapshot while the selected disks can be viewed under disks tab. To improve/clarify the UX, perhaps we can add a similar indication for disks under snapshots tab? I.e. something like adding a list of previewed disks under snapshot description? [Attached is a mock-up for illustration]

ok, I just uploaded attachment 924215 [details] without noticing that Daniel has uploaded a solution a couple of minutes before that. :)
all in all, the solutions are pretty similar - I am not sure whether we should display "OK", "In Preview" or something else for the snapshot's status for which Disks are previewed. not critical though.

Comment 8 Liz 2014-08-05 16:10:06 UTC
@Daniel - This make complete sense to me to allow for this same detail to be available to the user in the Snapshots tab after the user has selected a specific VM. Reusing the exact same column title and row styling makes most sense to me. Thanks for the extra clarification on this.


Comment 9 Ori Gofen 2014-09-14 15:37:43 UTC
is this should be fixed on vt3.1 build? because it isn't

Comment 10 Ori Gofen 2014-09-15 09:47:31 UTC
After discussion with derez,the fix is not yet merged.
returning to modify

Comment 11 Allon Mureinik 2014-09-15 12:32:57 UTC
This is an oVrit bug, with a fix included in ovirt-3.5.0_rc2, and thus must be ON_QA.
The fact that it's not included in any RHEVM build yet is inconsequential.
