Description Martin Bukatovic 2021-04-26 17:09:39 UTC
Description of problem

Tech preview badge is not used in consistent way:

- arbiter stretch cluster (see KNIP-1316) doesn't have tech preview badge
- storage class encryption (see KNIP-1543) has the tech preview badge

This could increase customer confustion about state of particular optional
OCS features.

How reproducible


Steps to Reproduce

1. Deploy OCP cluster
2. Install OCS and LSO operators
3. Use "Create Storage Cluster" wizard in OCP Console to start setup of Storage
   Cluster in "Internal - Attached devices" mode.
4. Go through the wizard as usual, creating local volume set from devices on
   all worker nodes and during "Storage and Nodes" step, check "Enable arbiter"
   option (screenshot 1)
5. During "Configure" step, click on "Enable encryption" and see "Storage class
   encryption" option (screenshot 2).

Actual results

Feature from step #4 (arbiter) is not marked as tech preview, while the feature
from step #5 ("storage class encryption") is.

Expected results

Either all OCS tech preview features should be flagged with "tech preview"
badge, or the tech preview badge should not be used for OCS features.

Additional info

Until I accidentally run into the tech preview badge for "storage class
encryption", I wasn't aware that such badge exists and that we use it for
some OCS features.
