Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: PackageManifest items on the OperatorHub page were using the first item in the 'status.channels' property instead of the channel defined in the 'status.defaultChannel' property. Consequence: Incorrect descriptions might have been shown for some OperatorHub items. Fix: Update logic on the OperatorHub page to use the default channel instead of the first channel. Result: OperatorHub items now show description and other details from the default channel.

Description zhaozhanqi 2019-10-23 09:46:28 UTC
Created attachment 1628243 [details]

Description of problem:
when using 'oc get packagemanifest sriov-network-operator -o yaml' with registry 'redhat-operators-art'. it will show two version description (4.2 and 4.3). and the defaultchannel is 4.3

from the attachment 'oc get packagemanifest sriov-network-operator -o yaml' ,you can see the following difference in the description:

4.2 is using namespace with 'sriov-network-operator'
4.3 is using namespace with 'openshift-sriov-network-operator'

but from webcosole, it shows 4.2 description. see picture attachment.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup 4.3 cluster
2. Create opsrc with registry 'redhat-operators-art'
3. oc get packagemanifest sriov-network-operator -o yaml 
4. Check the sriov description from webconsole(operatorhub->networking->sriov)

Actual results:
see above $description

Expected results:

since 4.2 and 4.3 is using different name for namespace. So in 4.3 version, it should show 4.3 description.

Tried to reproduce locally: 

$ oc get opsrc -n openshift-marketplace 

NAME                   TYPE          ENDPOINT              REGISTRY               DISPLAYNAME             PUBLISHER   STATUS      MESSAGE                                       AGE
community-operators    appregistry   https://quay.io/cnr   community-operators    Community Operators     Red Hat     Succeeded   The object has been successfully reconciled   25h
redhat-operators-art   appregistry   https://quay.io/cnr   redhat-operators-art   Red Hat Art Operators   Red Hat     Succeeded   The object has been successfully reconciled   23h

$ oc get packagemanifest sriov-network-operator -o yaml |grep defaultChannel
defaultChannel: "4.2"

Looks like the description from the default channel shows up. 

This is working as intended.

Comment 7 Anik 2019-11-08 15:04:51 UTC
Upon further testing, it looks like console does not select the description from the default channel's CSV. 

Further instructions on how to test this: 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup 4.3 cluster
2. Disable all default operator source.
3. Create operator bundle that has two channels 4.2 and 4.3, and make 4.3 the default channel. I've modified the community-operators/quay operator bundle to reflect this (https://github.com/anik120/community-operators/tree/console-test/community-operators/quay)
4. Create opsrc that has the above mentioned operator bundle. (The quay namespace `anik120` has the above mentioned modified operator bundle and can be reused too)
5. `oc get packagemanifest quay -o yaml` shows that the descriptions for the CSV were set correctly in the packagemanifest  
6. Check the quay description from webconsole(operatorhub->quay)

Actual results:
4.2 description shows up

Expected results:

Since 4.3 is the default channel, console should pick up description for the 4.3 channel, and not the first one it gets.
