We use a patternfly component: https://github.com/patternfly/patternfly-react/tree/master/packages/react-console
We only send this component a VMI resource, It looks like the bug is in PF - once a fix is found, it should be propagated to PF

Comment 2 Yaacov Zamir 2021-05-26 06:34:15 UTC
Note II:
this bug is in the same PF component as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1964786

Comment 4 Phillip Bailey 2021-07-13 01:24:01 UTC
Root problem is in PatternFly. https://github.com/patternfly/patternfly-react/issues/6007 was opened to track it on the PF side and https://github.com/patternfly/patternfly-react/pull/6012 was opened to fix the issue. Once fix is merged on the PF side and a new release is available, we will need to update to that release to see the fix on our side.
