Description Stephen Wadeley 2017-09-07 11:57:55 UTC
Description of problem:

The text in the web UI "keep the host for future action", is vague.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Satellite (build: 6.3.0)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. navigate to Hosts → All Hosts and select the check box to the left of the hosts to be disassociated.
2. From the Select Action drop-down menu, select the Disassociate Hosts button.

3. Notice that in the confirmation window it says:

    Optionally select to keep the host for future action. 

Notice only one selection box for two hosts (see attached screen capture)

Additional info:

Please explain verbosely how this is supposed to work so we can suggest better screen text.

Thank you

Makes sense to me - I'm cloning it to Foreman upstream. I don't see any reason why this bug should be private.

Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/20873 from this bug

Stephen, when you do some bulk action, you need to select one or more hosts on which it will be performed. The mentioned checkbox will keep the selection for next time you perform another bulk action. If you want to disassociate a set of hosts and you know, you will want to assign them to a different organization just afterwards, this saves you some clicks since hosts will remained selected on hosts list page. Please publish this BZ as it does not contain any sensitive information and ideally suggest a better description, we're happy to update it :-)

Thank you Marek for comment 6

I think we should not use the words "keep selected hosts" as we are in the process of disassociating hosts, that is confusing I think. We are not literally keeping the hosts, just the list. So given that, how about:

Remember this selection for the next bulk action.

Thank you

Thank you, I updated upstream issue with the suggestion.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/20873 has been resolved.

Verified in Snap 8

The text has been changed to be less confusing and more reflective of it's actual intent.

Changed to: "Remember hosts selection for the next bulk action"
