Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: A bug in a dependency (see https://github.com/terser/terser/issues/407) resulted in the persistent unmounting and remounting of the YAML Editor component. Consequence: The YAML editor inside of the OpenShift web console jumps to the top of the YAML file every few seconds Fix: To work around the bug, the default parameter value was removed. Result: The YAML Editor behaves as expected.

Investigating.  Trying to determine reproducer.

Comment 4 Yadan Pei 2020-12-07 03:26:21 UTC
on a 4.7 cluster
1. install etcd operator
2. view CSV yaml and scroll down, update some fields such as description in specDescriptors, keep YAML editor open and anchor at the update line
3. after several minutes, it will jump to the first line. in my trying it took several minutes to jump to the first line.

I'm not sure if this is the same issue with customer. but I remembered that the issue jumps to the first line seems happens on a earlier version easily, but on a newer version it's not jumping every few seconds

closing and reconnecting web socket ss shared by the cu

The Customer has confirmed that this is the same issue faced by them, they are on OCP Version 4.6.6, Customer suggested that they noticed the closing and reconnecting web socket so the problem seems to be caused by closing and opening web socket connections. I have attached the image shared by the cu.

This issue is very hard to debug as it appears to only occur in production builds.  We have some good suspects, but we've yet to find a fix.  We are continuing to investigate.

Continuing to investigate, but still not able to determine a root cause.

Comment 11 Robb Hamilton 2020-12-18 20:05:29 UTC
Christian Vogt was able to identify the source of the bug in a dependency of a dependency and identified a work around.  Will back port to 4.6 as soon as the fix lands in master/4.7.

Checked on 4.7 cluster with payload 4.7.0-0.nightly-2021-01-04-215816.
Install operator etcd in project, then go to the csv yaml tab, scroll down, edit in the yaml, wait for a few minutes, it doesn't jump to the top of the yaml now.
The bug is fixed.
