Description Jitendra Yejare 2015-12-15 10:15:37 EST
Description of problem:
I believe we should be able to choose puppet class while creating a Smart Variable. As of now we can do that after editing variable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Scenario 1:
Steps to Reproduce:
-> From Config -> Classes -> Class -> Smart Variables, create a new Smart Variable.
Actual results:
-> The smart variable is created in the same class from where we created it.

Scenario 2:
-> Edit the above created variable. And Change the Puppet Class it belongs to.
Actual Result:
This changes the puppet class of that smart variable.

Expected results:
we should be able to choose puppet class while 'creating' Smart Variable.

I'm not sure being able to select a puppet class for a smart variable while being in a context of one puppet class wouldn't cause too much confusion. What about being able to create a smart variable from the list of smart variables?

IMO that would make more sense and could be prepared for non-puppet smart variables.
Comment 5 Ivan Necas 2016-04-26 08:35:38 EDT
Moving target to 6.3, as it would not make much sense until we have puppet-independent class variables
Comment 6 Jitendra Yejare 2016-06-06 04:25:36 EDT

Good Suggestion ! I would vote for creating a smart var from Smart Variables list which will allow us to choose puppet class there itself.
