Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: if you install the web terminal operator on an OpenShift cluster the terminal icon on the banner head will only appear if the web terminal operator is installed in the OpenShift-Operators namespace. In order to support fully support OSD (and devsandbox), we needed the ability to have the devworkspacetemplates and the web terminal operator to be installed in other namespaces then openshift-operators and have those devworkspacetemplates still be picked up by the console. Consequence: Operator couldn't be installed in namespace other than openshift-operators Result: devworkspacetemplates are installed in the namespace where the operator is installed.
