automation and import log
Description of problem:
When a failed migration task occur, MIQ UI provides a general error message for the failure. For example: 'VM Transformations failed'.
It would be nice if we could get a reason for the failure, or aggregated errors from engine/host logs that relates to it. Currently, we need to dig the logs to find the root cause, which makes troubleshooting harder.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If failure occurs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate migration task which leads to VM transformation failure.
General error message.
Should be specific error message.
As we discussed in BZ#1597471 the tasks are purposefully working in asynchronous mode in order to not block the UI. Therefore feedback from the tasks are visible in the tasks list.
In order to make it clearer for the user, the initial request message could contain a explicit mention to the task list and a link to it.
Let's create a dedicated RFE to support this across the board.
This issue is also happening on other asynchronous tasks and the feature to enhance the user experience across all involved tasks is going to be taken care tracked with BZ#1597471.
Therefore closing this one.
