[Docs] [Install] Browser requirements completely ignore RHEL 7
Last modified: 2016-02-10 13:57:00 EST
Description of problem:
browser requirements completely ignores RHEL7.
2.1. Browser Requirements
Use a supported web browser to access the Administration Portal and the User Portal. The portals support the following browsers:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.x - Mozilla Firefox 31
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 - Mozilla Firefox 31
Windows 7 - Internet Explorer 9 or later
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhevm-docs shipped with 3.5.4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open admin guide and check for browser requirements
we ignore existence of RHEL7
RHEL7 should be mentioned at least
Assigning to Lucy for review.
That content was actually updated earlier this year at the recommendation of support and engineering (bug 1193251). The new version of the browser requirements topic mentions only operating system families, and not specific versions. It is available here:
I've taken a look at the documentation in the rhevm-doc package, and it seems that the books are several revisions behind. I will follow that up with the component owner. Does the more up-to-date version I've linked above better explain the recommended browser requirements?
Also adding Einav to confirm support. Einav, do we support Firefox 31 on RHEL 7 for Admin or User Portal access (for 3.5)? The updated topic mentions simply 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux', so it's fair that readers would assume RHEL 7 is included in that definition. If it is not supported, I will update the 3.5 docs to say so.
we should actually mention that we support FF38, not FF31 (see bug 1223194).
this is relevant for 3.5. for 3.6, need to update the documentation based on the instructions in bug 1188226 (see comment #2 in that BZ for the updated matrix).
no need to differentiate between different versions of RHEL.
