Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 830770
rhev-h [usability]: not all fields in the admin console can be accessed with the keyboard arrows
Last modified: 2016-04-26 10:14:00 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed rhev-h today and realized that we cannot access some of the fields in the admin console using the keyboard arrows which makes it seem as if they are grayed-out and cannot be edited.
please allow users to move on all fields with conventional usages of console install (as I would be able to when installing rhel).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor release 6.3 (20120606.3)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rhev-h
2. try to configure the system using the keyboard
we cannot access some of the fields (such as ssh, and rhevm)
we should be able to access all fields using conventional keys as we would in any rhel install.
I'm not clear on what you're referring to. There are fields that we disable when they either can't be configured or when they're not relevant, but all fields can be accessed/configured via the keyboard. We have no mouse support, so keyboard is the only option.
Please provide additional details on what can't be configured -- where, what steps you've done, etc...
this is what I was unable to access using the tab and arrows.
1. enable ssh password authentication -> could not navigate to it with the keyboard arrows.
2. rhev-m menu -> could not access the Management Server line with the keyboard arrows
3. in network -> could not access the device configuration using keyboard arrows.
you need to press the space to enter these fields.
All fields can be accessed/configured via the keyboard from QE side.

You can navigate all fields by below key:
Up and down arrow
left and right arrow
