Description of problem:
F.e. when I deploy some instance in Amazon's EC2 Provider to CFME, I see appropriate Instance create event in event streams. If I open timelines for this instance's azone, I see "No records found for this timeline" warning message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Amazon as a cloud provider to CFME
2. Deploy any instance and make sure event_streams table contains appropriate provider's events
3. go to this instance's Availability Zone and open Timelines for it
4. Select All Management Event's Categories and click Apply
"No records found for this timeline" message
All supported provider's events should displayed in Timelines

Marcel can you take a look at this one?
*** Bug 1398023 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This issue is also present in 5.6.
Ievgen, what exactly do you mean by "Timelines are disabled for Amazon Provider and Instances." The buttons are greyed out or not present?
Marcel, the buttons aren't present.
Ievgen, can you share a screenshot?
For me the buttons are present (at 5.7) - see attachment
You are right that the buttons should not be present for 5.6 though, which is correct

are you sure you've checked this in 5.7 ?
1) CF 4.2 documentation states opposite -
It may turn out that this is just bug in documentation but I've just checked EC2 provider and instance entities in CFME 18.104.22.168 (rc3) and see that Timelines control is absent there as well.
Please take a look at two attached screenshots.

Ok, you are right. I've been using master and was thinking https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq/pull/10588 made it also into euwe, but alas no.
So, back to the original description, we should disable Timelines for AvailabilityZones. Right?
This is caused here
If you still think we should disable timelines for availabilityzones, I'd move this over to the UI team again. But tbh, I'd consider this rather low prio
CFME should either provide fully working timelines for Availability Zone or shouldn't provide it at all.
From my perspective, second is preferable because other Amazon entities don't have timelines.
Ok, as this BZ is slated for 5.8 aka cfme-future I think we can leave this and wait until we make the events in the db presentable for timelines.
In case we want timelines to be disabled for 5.7 and 5.6 see comment #16 and we probably need a BZ for the respective z streams then
Now timelines are just a setting away.
Current master adds those events
Now the question is, under what category should we display them?
cannot verify because Timelines is completely broken since 22.214.171.124.
