Description Ian Springer 2011-07-13 11:34:13 EDT
This isn't intuitive. A user could easily accidentally delete or acknowledge all alerts in the system, when they only intended to delete or acknowledge the alerts shown by the portlet.

to easily solve this, we should hide the "all" buttons (delete all, acknowledge all). It is easy enough for the user to select the small number of rows shown here (typically only 5) and do a "delete" or "acknowledge". Otherwise, I think we would have to hack up some of the datasource code.

master commit 1a38866

the alert portlets no longer show the delete all and ack all buttons, so this problem goes away. This isn't too bad because the portlets are small anyway, and these two extra buttons with the long labels crowd the button area on the portlets and sometimes clip.

Do delete all or acknowledge all in the portlets, you just shift-click the first and last or you just control-click all of them. 

the normal alert history view still has the ability to delete all and ack all
