oVirt gerrit 46903 0 master MERGED webadmin: Disk tab displays template version name for attached disk Never

Description of problem:
 See att image - there is not clear which disk belongs to which template version (1st and last on image).  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
saw on 3.5.0, but probably on newer as well.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have template & create new version of it
2. see the Disk tab for both templates and their disks

Actual results:
Currently I've 2 images where each lies on different storage. 

Expected results:
Clearly distinguished disks in Disks tab 

Additional info:

you give the name during the create process... just like when crating regular templates..
if you like to have a unique name, just write it there in the dialog.

did i misunderstand the issue? or can we close this?

Comment 2 Pavel Stehlik 2015-04-05 11:05:34 UTC
Unfortunately there is problem.
If you'll do same for VM based on template - see steps:
Create Template name BBB, create VM, name it CCC based on BBB (only choose VM name, nothing else changed - no disk renaming) then switched to Disks tab you'll see:
two disks with name BBB_Disk1, each will have different ID and one will have 'Attached To' column BBB and second CCC.

Here we have different behaviour with versioned templates - there is NO distinguish among TempalteOriginal & TemplateVersionX - as the column 'AttachedTo' is same for both - see original image. 
Adding another pic with templates - the name is same, only Version differs (but in disks there is no such identifier).

(sory I wasn't more specific before).

Comment 5 Michal Skrivanek 2015-09-30 08:30:42 UTC
would probably enough to show disks like "Attached To: template(subversion)". Just need a note in docs what that thing in parenthesis mean

Comment 6 Jiri Belka 2016-05-31 09:37:46 UTC
ok, rhevm-4.0.0-0.7.master.el7ev.noarch

template disks in Disks maintab contain following info in 'Attached To' column:

$vm (base version)
$vm (template sub-name)
