Groups - Monitoring: Traits subtab cannot group by other columns
Last modified: 2014-05-02 14:04:42 EDT
Description of problem:
In the Traits subtab, the data for any resource (group) is already broken out by Trait. However, each row also has a separate Traits column that matches this breakout. Probably (?) don't need this column.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a group of compatible platform (linux servers, for example)
2. Navigate to Monitoring > Traits subtab
3. View results.
Data is grouped by trait, and then a separate Traits col. also exists.
Probably don't need this column taking up valuable screen real estate if by definition each item grouped under a specific trait header is going to be the same.
I guess the only value this adds is it allows users to sort ascending/descending by trait type. But there is probably a better way to handle this in the UI than creating a column of otherwise superfluous information simply to allow a sort.
I haven't checked, but this is probably also the case outside the Groups context (i.e., for a single resource). It was found while testing group monitoring, however.

As far as I could tell, throughout the traits these match 1:1. So probably don't need the col., esp. if we can find a better way to provide a sorting mechanism for these traits.
go to the trait view for a group.
Try to "Group by" any column. The data disappears and you can't get it back.
