Description Stephen Wadeley 2019-10-31 21:06:32 UTC
Description of problem:

When a Satellite has many organizations and locations it can be time consuming to search and select the one you want from the context menu.

I would like to be able to enter a name in a search field, and for auto-complete to be supported so that I can search by typing in the first part of the name.

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


Additional info:

Being able to select by entering the Org and Loc by ID would also be helpful.

Stephen, are our selectors capable of searching when you type? It may be missing in some forms, can you please be a bit more specific, where you'd like to see this?

Org Selection menu

Hello Marek

See attached screen capture. You will see these three lines in the drop down:

Organization  <-- Just a title
Any Organization   
Manage Organizations

You can select those but not enter a string to search on.
Perhaps UI team has some ideas, but just having a search box as the third option would work.

If its easier, you could also add something on the Manage Organizations page to become that org.

Thank you

Oh, I didn't realize you talk about the main org switcher. Ok, I agree that would be nice. Of course the same for location.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/28900 has been resolved.
