Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 194029
Providing alert message in Hardware Certification Interface
Last modified: 2008-08-04 13:55:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Some times, it was observed that some of the important fields are left blank
e.g. Product Page URL.
While submitting a new Hardware Certification request through
hardware.redhat.com, e.g. if "Product Page URL" field is left blank, then it
should alert with the "help" message like "Please enter Product Page URL OR
mention N.A. You may need to specify product specifications or attach product
specification sheet in the request".
If Product Page URL or product specifications are not mentioned, then review
process could not be initiated. This will avoid delays causing due to lack of
information about product specifications
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login to hardware.redhat.com
2.Click on "Create"
3.Then go to Product Page URL.
Presently, even if you keep this field blank and just attach the test rpm and
click "Continue", the request will be submitted.
In this case, if "Product Page URL" field is left blank, it should alert with
the help message like "Please enter Product Page URL OR mention N.A. You may
need to specify product specifications or attach product specification sheet in
If "Product Page URL" field is left blank, it should alert with the help message
like "Please enter Product Page URL OR mention N.A. You may need to specify
product specifications or attach product specification sheet in the request".

whether or not is NULL(leave blank). if "NULL",then pop up a alert dialog box
whose warning message is "Please enter "Product Page URL" or mention "N/A". You
may need to specify product specifications or attach product specification
sheet in the request".
Above patch's solution is just an option for fixing this bug.
so, I have another thought for fixing this bug: throw the user error which
means when vendor left the "Product Page URL" blank and summit, then throw a
user's error by the function "ThrowUserError("Miss Product Page URL")".
please give me some suggestion.

Another patch for this bug.
This patch use another warning style for notice. its style is like the NOTICE
for "retiring the rhr package" in our catalog's index page.
Suggestion; instead of the top clearBoxWide, how about simply highlighting in
the summary section that no URL has been provided? This could also feature
creep to go ahead and also highlight (again in the summary section where the
fields are) that make and model haven't been provided if they are the default
values. So this bug could resolve a more generic missind data issue.

Fllow Rob's suggestion.
1.highlighting message "no URL has been provided" in the URL field when missing
2.highlighting message "Make hasn't been provided" in the Make field when
3.highlighting message "Model hasn't been provided" in the Model field when

The screen snap shot for the warnning messages.
also can visit the http://bugdev.devel.redhat.com/hwcert-xisun2 to see the new
change for high lighting the missing data.
The screen shot helps thanks, I think the language can be simplified to "(Not
Provided)" instead of the unique error messages; but otherwise looks good.

1.add js for when data source is changed to provide manually,change the default
to "Not Provided".
Testing on -xisun5 shows the change, but the (Not Provided) does not appear in
red and "model" ends up with no value on the verify page?
Actually we're going the wrong way, make and model should user error and tell
the vendor to do it again. The URL can just display in red (Not Provided) on
the confirmation screen because on the 1st page it's prepopulated with http://
so (Not Provided) ends up meaning the same thing as a blank http:// marker.

1.Use ThrowUserError for Make and Model.
2.Add two UserError type.(missing_make & missing_model)
3.keep URL's part no changes.

Thanks a lot
Looks good; please commit.
tested and run good
