[RFE] option to clone and also add a description column for 'Operating Systems' in Satellite 6
Last modified: 2018-02-19 16:29:12 EST
Per 6.3 planning, moving out non acked bugs to the backlog
The title column displays OS description if it's present and it falls back to "$name $release" if it's not. I don't think it makes sense to add description separately. Please note that the OS description will be limited to 254 characters because it's used as the identifier in UI (introduced in upstream by http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/14783)
The cloning of OS is a valid RFE.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/17931 from this bug
BTW we discussed unification of the fields in bz 1393524. Regardless of how complicated is the current implementation, from users' perspective it's one "title" field with some default value ("$name $release") provided by foreman.
We should use only the term "title" in forms, ideally with live update of the default value when the field is empty.
Hi Tomas and Marek,
The recent updates from each you suggest this may get addressed soon. Are either of you able to commit to this being addressed in Satellite 6.3?
Hello Andrew, I'm afraid we can't promise this. Currently it's not on top of our priorities. I understand that cloning OS for new version is painful but hopefully not something that user would need to do every day.
