as a preparation for removal of Legacy USB support (hopefully in 4.1) we will add "(deprecated)" label to the current UI
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1333436 +++
Description of problem:
Let's drop Legacy USB altogether:
* it was by no means reliable nor secure
* it was superseded by UsbDk that was already shipped in 3.6
* its vendor support expired years ago
* its both components had limited OS support and those OSs are ageing and
falling out of use
* it depends on browser plug-ins that are being phased out
There are three places with Legacy USB(-related) code:
* engine (drop Legacy option of USB redirection and associated code)
* windows guest tools (drop USB driver)
* client (menu over socket/named pipe)
*** Bug 1348984 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

and a Console client resources web page (bug 1348984)
ovirt-engine/rhev/client-resources page has broken links to USB Clerk.
Please read Doc Text for this bug.
USBClerk should be removed.
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.

This is an upstream bug. The doc text should not refer to RHEV as well as the verification should not be of the console client resources RHEV page but rather the upstream one (pointing to http://www.ovirt.org/documentation/admin-guide/virt/console-client-resources/) when there is no mentioning of USBClerk
This needs a d/s bug similar to bug 1340130
Please look at the history of this bug.

You closed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1348984 as a duplicate of this this.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1348984 --- was not fixed.
As 1348984 is a duplicate of this bug, I am sure that this wasn't fixed. Please, re-open 1348984 if you want to get away from 1348984 dependency.
yes. And i didn't notice it back then. It has a wrong product as well. It was reproted on d/s page but filed against upstream
I will change that one(no need for a new bz number :) and keep this bug for upstream which I hope it's addressed
Verified on version: 4.0.2-0.2.rc1.el7ev
