RFE: Multiorg - ability to visually distinguish between orgs
Last modified: 2014-09-18 13:01:50 EDT
Description of problem:
An EMEA customer (unknown who, Tom Madden collected the request) asked if there
would be a way to visually distinguish between orgs on Satellite. For example,
say I am rackspace and I use Satellite to manage orgs for different companies
per org. If I log into org 2 maybe the ui would be blue with a jetblue logo, org
3 maybe green with a hess logo, etc. (if jetblue and hess were rackspace
customers, just examples :) ) These visual queues may help prevent errors as
right now there is no good, persistent visual indicator of which org you are
This would be very accomplishable using CSS. A bit of development work will be
required though. Here is what we would need to do:
1) Add a hook for the CSS to identify which org's style to display - this can be
as simple as adding an ID or org to the body tag with the org number. For
example: <body id="org24">
2) A simple web interface per org (likely under Satellite Tools) where you can
upload your org's logo and select a color (we could allow hex color codes or
just give a basic set of 24 colors or something to pick from). This would save
the logo image to an appropriate dir on the Satellite and write out a css class
(could be a separate file as long as an include line is added in the main css
file0 for the org, like so:
(this is a very simplistic example but you see what I mean)
You would need to be able to go in afterwards and remove or update the logo, and
remove or change the color as well.
3) It would also be nice to add the human-readable name of an org to the site
template somewhere, perhaps near the login tools in the upper right corner.
Item #3 is within Satellite 530 GA code. None of the other ideas are.
This feature request is being met by Red Hat Satellite 6 (GA later this year 2014) as follows:
Satellite 6 delivers a menu navigation with the Organization Name in the header. The header remains at the top of the browser even when scrolling to the bottom of a large page. A user can always look in the top left and know what the current org is.
Closing this as CURRENTRELEASE - please feel free to re-open if you feel that the above implementation does not fulfill the requirements, or open a new request for any additional, Satellite 6 specific improvements.
