Description Jan Senkyrik 2023-05-11 13:01:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Satellite 6.13 introduced a wizard for running jobs.

It can be quite tedious when doing a re-run as you have to go through the entire wizard again. It remembers the values from the initial run which is good but one has to click on 'Next' five times to re-run the job. Also on 'Advanced fields' page you might need to scroll down to find the 'Next' button.

The legacy form (while harder on the eyes) allowed user to re-run the job right away by clicking 'Submit'.

An option to do a re-run with single click would be nice.

How to reproduce:
- Start a job, you will get redirected to job invocation page
- On job invocation page click on 'Rerun'

Comment 3 Pavel Novotny 2023-07-12 15:35:10 UTC
Verified in 6.14 snap 5.


The Run job dialog now has two new buttons `Run on selected hosts` and `Skip to review`.

When all mandatory fields are filled in, these buttons become enabled.

`Run on selected hosts` immediately schedules the job on the selected hosts.

`Skip to review` takes user to the `Review details` step.


When Re-running the job, `Run on selected hosts` executes the job with the previously selected hosts and parameters.
