Description Dustin Black 2016-01-21 17:26:38 EST
Description of problem:
A note in section 4.2 of the OSP 7 Configuration Reference suggests:

If you do not want to use this theme you can remove it and its dependencies using the following command:

# yum erase openstack-dashboard-theme

However, openstack-dashboard-theme is a dependency of openstack-dashboard, and so proceeding with this yum erase will remove the dashboard entirely.

Comment 2 Ruchika K 2016-01-28 16:01:58 EST
Should be replaced with

rpm -e --nodeps openstack-dashboard-theme

verified that removing it like allows the horizaon dashboard to look like the RDO version
Comment 3 Andrew Dahms 2016-02-04 22:17:38 EST
Assigning to Suyog for review.

Suyog - this is the bug connected with customizing the dashboard.
Comment 7 Matthias Runge 2016-05-25 06:28:24 EDT
you can disable the -theme by doing the following:

cd /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/enabled
cp _99_customization.py _999_remove_theme.py
echo "DISABLED = True" >> _999_remove_theme.py

systemctl restart httpd

this will disable the theme, and it won't come back after a package update.
Comment 8 Lucy Bopf 2017-04-24 01:04:32 EDT
The updated instructions for disabling the theme according to comment 7 have now been published for RHOSP 9 and RHOSP 10:



The need to update RHOSP 8 is being determined in bug 1298410, and the changes from this bug will be backported as well if required.

Closing this bug.
