Displaying full role name

Comment 5 Leos Stejskal 2020-01-23 15:15:15 UTC
one way how to fix this issue is displaying full name all the time (see screenshot https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=1654872).
What do you think about this solution?

Comment 6 Sean O'Keeffe 2020-01-23 18:30:37 UTC
Looks good to me - thanks!

Comment 7 Bryan Kearney 2020-02-19 13:03:18 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/28849 has been resolved.

unwrappable long role name

Tested on Firefox with Satellite 6.8 SNAP3. I also tried some long string which cannot be wrapped and the result is that the name overlaps into another column - see screenshot.

Comment 10 Radek Mynar 2020-07-15 12:30:56 UTC
I entered a new bug to track issue mentioned in comment 8 - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1857198
