Description Avital Pinnick 2020-08-03 12:25:45 UTC
In the VM Import wizard, it would be useful to add a tooltip to the Storage Class field in the Storage screen indicating the supported storage classes.

If VMware is the selected provider, the tooltip should say "*NFS* and *ceph-rbd* are supported."

If RHV is the selected provider, the tooltip should say "*NFS* is supported."

Filtering in the UI the relevant storage classes can be even more helpful here.

Filtering could cause an empty list of storage classes, which would cause additional issues.
please take a look at the PR, I added alerts

Avital and Ilanit hi,

Do we have documentation of supported storage class for oVirt and vmWare imported virtual machines ?
Can we know what are the supported classes available in our cluster for each case ?

Comment 6 Yaacov Zamir 2021-04-11 15:53:36 UTC
Gilad, looking at the doc, the allowed Storage Classes are not named NFS and ceph-rbd, this names are just examples of Storage Classes that fit the OpenShift Virtualization storage feature matrix

I think the most helpful tooltip we can give is saying:
"The following table describes the OpenShift Virtualization storage types that support VM import(^ link to the documentation Avital provided)"

Comment 9 Ilanit Stein 2021-06-21 10:17:20 UTC
Bug cannot be verified since this bug is blocking the ability to see the related screens in the OCP console:
Bug 1974297 - [v2v][VM import from VMware dialog via UI] VMs list is not loaded

Comment 10 Ilanit Stein 2021-06-29 16:19:40 UTC
I was able to test it for VM import from RHV, and the notification is there, as expected, 
however it directs to VMware documentation instead of RHV documentation.
Filed Bug 1976582 - [UI][VM import from RHV] Supported Storage message link directs to Import from VMware document

Comment 11 Ilanit Stein 2021-07-06 07:55:33 UTC
Moving back to assigned based on previous comment and that Bug 1976582 won't make it to OCP-4.8.0.

Comment 14 Yaacov Zamir 2021-07-26 09:28:14 UTC
moving to modified:
https://github.com/openshift/console/pull/8610 should be in 4.8.z

If this needs a backport please move back to assign

Comment 15 Yaacov Zamir 2021-07-26 12:20:08 UTC
This is an RFE to a feature that is detracted, closing because of capacity and priority.
