Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 588401
The create compatible group "Select Resource Type..." option for "JBossAS Server" changes
Last modified: 2010-09-20 21:55:36 EDT
Description of problem:
When creating a compatible group, there is a drop down list for "Select Resource Type..." The option "JBossAS Server" changes depending on what resources have been inventoried.
If only a JBossAS 4 resource is in inventory, the option label is:
When both a JBossAS 4 and 5 resource is in inventory, the option labels are:
"JBossAS Server (JBossAS Plugin)"
"JBossAS Server (JBossAS5 Plugin)"
This causes problems for our automated tests and may actually be more informative to a user to use a fixed option label. I would suggest to use the parenthesized plugin name in the option label all the time no matter what is inventoried.
I guess this bugzilla is more of a request than a defect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
build number: 303467a
I think this design needs to be fixed. There is no need to hide the plugin name when there's only one of many same-named resource types. It's misleading. It makes the user think that a compatible group can contain both jbossas4 and jbossas5, when it cannot.
Consider this scenario - user adds jbossas4 servers to inventory, creates a compatible group, and chooses "JBossAS Server" and adds his jbossas4 servers. He thinks, "ok I have a group of JBossAS Servers. Now I am going to import some JBossAS5 servers and add them to the group". And when he goes to add them he can't add them.
closing this bug per the gwt redesign. it can be reopened if considered critical or re-visited when the gwt implementation is available.
