Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: During a previous bug fix, the download link for pod logs was changed to a standard HTML anchor element with an empty download attribute. Consequence: The downloaded file lost the previous default file name format. Fix: Add a file name to the anchor element download attribute Result: A default file name formatted as "<pod-name>-<container-name>.log" is used when downloading pod logs.

Description Rejeeb 2021-04-01 13:18:41 UTC
Description of problem:

In OCP 4.6 console, while we try to download pod logs, it is getting downloaded as `log.txt` for any pod logs.

However, in OCP 4.5, when we try to download a pod log the format of the file would be `<pod-name>-<container-name>.log`.

Naming every pod log file as log.txt would make it hard for the customer to understand if we try to download multiple pod logs (it will be like log.txt, log (1).txt, log (2).txt  etc).

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

OCP v4.6

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download a pod log from the OpenShift Console.

Actual results:

The downloaded pod logs are in the format `log.txt`.

Expected results:

The downloaded pod logs should be in the format `<pod-name>-<container-name>.log` as we see in OpenShift 4.5.

the downloaded log file names

The pod logs are now named as pod names instead of generic text.


Steps to verify:
1. Login to admin console
2. Navigate to the Workloads>pods and download logs from the details 
3. Note the name of the log file is same as the pod name.

Comment 3 Yadan Pei 2021-04-09 01:42:00 UTC
log file name is in format: ${pod_name}-${container_name}.log
