picture of help button

When you click on DATACENTER tab ... then click on iSCSI Multipathing tab

Click ADD ...

Then click the help button - the ? (question mark) on the title bar.

It should open a new window with the RHEV documentation.  It does not.

Running Firefox 49.0 on FC23.

Other ? (question marks) in the product work on my desktop - so I think only this one is broken.

Thanks for reporting.

@Lucy or Tahlia, what URL should I use for this?

Comment 3 rhev-integ 2017-01-08 06:24:32 UTC
The anchor for this section (in html-single) is administration-guide/#Configuring_iSCSI_Multipathing

The closest the multi-page HTML gets is administration-guide/85-preparing-and-adding-block-storage 

I'm not certain how the mapping works now in 4.0, given the change in links and layout with the new publication system, but one of these should work. 

Leaving needinfo on Lucy in case she knows more.

As I understand it, although the link format has entirely changed for the Customer Portal documentation, it remains the same for the documentation packaged with the product itself.

The most recent mapping file for the Administration Portal lists the anchor for this section as:

; Data Center main tab -> iSCSI Bonds sub-tab -> New

I don't have a setup with iSCSI on which to test this particular help item, but on version of the RHV Manager, I can confirm that the anchor above matches the link in the html version of the Administration Guide available on the login page:

Lucy is right with the format.

Thanks for the link clarification. I'll figure out why it's failing.

Comment 6 rhev-integ 2017-01-08 06:24:47 UTC
iSCSI shouldn't have to be enabled for the help link/button to work.  It should just work, as customers will/should be able to read about the feature and how to set it up.

Correct -- she was simply referring to the fact that she couldn't navigate to the correct screen to test it for me :)

moving to POST. Lastest build of rhevm-doc should fix this, but I need help testing it.
