Description Melanie Corr 2017-12-07 10:06:28 UTC
Description of problem:
In Hosts > Operating Systems, when you go to select the Templates, each template has an asterisks beside its name. This is confusing

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hosts > Operating Systems.
2. Select an operating system, RHEL 7, or Fedora.
3. Select the Templates tab.
4. Every template option has an asterisk, which makes it look mandatory to make a selection for each one. 

Actual results:
According to Lzapletal, only three are mandatory: PXE, Provision, and Finish template

Expected results:
Only the mandatory template selections should have asterisks.

Comment 3 Marek Hulan 2018-08-07 07:14:18 UTC
Copying the reasoning from upstream.

I think we should remove all asterisks, which templates needs to be assigned is determined by what provisioning type you choose for this OS. In fact image based provisioning can work with finish template only. On the other hand that can lead to a confusion that no template is required. So alternative solution is keeping all asterisks but add help to the form that explains the purpose.

The alternative solution was picked, so asterisks will remain but there's little info icon next to it.
