Description Máirín Duffy 2010-05-06 17:49:36 EDT
Description of problem:

Normally, a listview in Spacewalk will tell you something like this in the upper right corner and lower right corner:

"1-14 of 20 (2 selected)"

Generally, the '20' refers to the number of total items in that list only, and the '2 selected' items are members of that list.

However, there's a big of a bug in this display. For lists that are SSM-powered (E.g., pretty much any list under Systems > Systems), the 'selected' portion of the text refers to how many things are in the SSM - even if some of those things aren't in the list you're looking at.

For example, let's say I'm looking at the 'Out-of-Date' systems list, and I select 10 systems. They get put in the SSM. now I have 10 systems in the SSM.

Then I navigate to the 'Recently Registered' list, and I select 2 systems. My system list page numbering will look like this:

"1-5 of 5 (12 selected)"

It's a little weird. I don't know the answer to this dilemma. But it's definitely a confusing bug.

Mass-aligning under space12, so that we don't lose track of this bugzilla. This however does not mean that we plan (will be able to) address this bug in Spacewalk 1.2.
Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2010-11-19 11:04:31 EST
Mass-moving to space13.
Comment 3 Miroslav Suchý 2011-04-11 03:33:06 EDT
We did not have time for this one during Spacewalk 1.4 time frame. Mass moving to Spacewalk 1.5.

Aligning under space16.

Máirín, isn't this actually correct? Yes, you are looking at five records, yet there are 12 systems in the SSM. Do we actually have a way to know that you have those 2 systems selected for the current listview?

Hey Jan, it is actually correct; it's just confusing / disorienting.

I *think* maybe a easy fix (if this string can be changed in just one place) would be to say something like

"1-5 of 5 (12 items in SSM)"

Although that's still odd. Maybe better would be to just have 

"1-5 of 5" in the list view, and have the SSM count in the SSM bar?

Omitting number of selected items for SSM related system selections ...
