Description Aritra Roy 2021-08-26 21:16:09 UTC
Description of problem:
The language preference set from the user preference page is not honored when console loads. Also, in the absence of a preference, the console defaults to English, ignoring "browser preference".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Scenario 1: user preference is not honored
1.Go to User Preference Page and click on Language & region tab
2.Click on the Language dropdown and select a language other than English
3.reload console

Scenario 2: browser preference is not honored in the absence of user preference
1.Set a language preference for your browser
2.Clear user settings from configmap and local storage if it exists
3.load console

Actual results:
The loads with English in both scnenario

Expected results:

Marking this bug as high/blocker+ since I believe it will prevent you from using the console in another language with no workaround (short of manually editing `localStorage` in the JS console).
