Description David Peraza 2021-05-26 13:57:55 UTC
Description of problem:

Helm has two types of charts, one is application and the other is library charts. Library charts are not meant to be installed directly but rather are to be used as dependencies under the chart directory. Currently in OCP 4.7 and 4.8 I can install library charts and a release is created without any errors in the console. The expected behavior is to not be able to see the Library chart or at least get an error when trying to instal. This is consistent with the helm cli interface.

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

OCP 4.7.12 and 4.8.0-0.nightly-2021-05-26-021757

How reproducible:

Every Time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a repo that has library charts for example: http://docs.wildfly.org/wildfly-charts/
2. From dev console select helm under catalog
3. Select the repo just added
4. Click install

Actual results:

Library chart install creates a release.

Expected results:

Install should trigger an error like in helm cli. Preferably should not even show the library chart in the catalog. 

Additional info:

This bug was first reported under https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1933101. But need to add here to separate the two issues described in Bug 1933101

@igreen we could cherry pick to 4.6 if there is demand on this. Looks like we should if at least one customer will benefit.

Added library chart `http://docs.wildfly.org/wildfly-charts/` . Could see the `Wildfly v1.3.0` in the dev catalog. Could successfully install & upgrade the helm chart
verified on build 4.8.0-0.nightly-2021-06-09-023740
