Description of problem: When logged on UI and after timeout, logging back always start at landing page (Dashboard by default). It is unconvenient but not super critical.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log to CloudForms, browse to any pages outside landing page
2. wait for time out
3. Log back.
Logging back to previous page before timeout if use same credentials. Satellite works this way.
We discussed this issue on today's bug triage call and decided that this is as designed and not something that we will change.
Let me add some color to this "bug". When you work on CloudForms, you can get distracted and work on email, or get a call etc... Then you come to your Web CloudForms UI and your session may have time out but you don't see it on the screen anywhere.. (static HTLM) which is not a big deal but then you decide to click on one of the menu on the left open page, of course, you are prompt for loging and password which is fine BUT then you are not back to the page you where clicking on, this is a pretty bad user experience. OpenStack and Satellite does it right.
