Description John Sefler 2010-01-25 12:29:14 EST
Description of problem:
When creating a Samba Share child resource within the iManage UI, there are two paramters whose usage is confusing:
1. Resource Name:
2. Name

The "Name" parameter is used to actually name the share.  It gets written to the smb.conf file as the share name.  It is used as the Resource Key for the child resource.  And it is appended by the string " share" to identify the share as a child resource of the Samba Server.

So the problem is:
Where does the "Resource Name:" value get used?  It looks like nowhere.

Expected results:
Personally I believe the intended design was for the "Resource Name:" value was to be used to name the child resource in the UI.  Therefore the hard-coded appending of " share" to the Name value is a bug.  The samba shares (child resources) of a samba server should be presented in the UI by the "Resource Name:" values entered at creation time.

Temporarily adding the keyword "SubBug" so we can be sure we have accounted for all the bugs.

new = Tracking + FutureFeature + SubBug

lowering severity/priority - not an enterprise plugin
