Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 847066
[RFE] After new VM creation, select this VM in the power user portal
Last modified: 2017-11-21 05:55:21 EST
Description of problem:
After new VM creation, select this VM. Currently, existing VM selection is preserved, meaning that if a user chooses to do anything in a VM sub-tab, he has to first click the VM. If another VM is selected prior to VM creation, user is likely to modify older VM instead of a newly created one.
This is mainly an ergonomic issue but it may lead to serious errors.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select a VM "1" in User Portal
2. create v VM "2", hit OK
VM "1" keeps being selected
VM "2" is selected (or alternatively no VM is selected but VM "2" is a better choice IMO)
webadmin is affected as well
webadmin is also affected, it's tracked in bug 847068.
einav - thoughts?
need to decide if in addition to selecting the newly created item, the already-selected item(s) remain selected.
if previous selection is retained - probably need to make sure that the newly-created item becomes the "main" selected item (i.e. the sub-tabs are displayed in its context, etc.).
if previous selection is not retained, the newly-created item will become the "main" selected item by definition, since it will be the only selected item.
wouldn't this require the gui to wait on the entity creation/grid refresh (assuming the current search will show it)?

oh, that's on the webadmin, which is bug 847068.
anyway, thoughts on effort vs. impact?
How does it look like in the new VM portal?
it will open the details of the newly created VM, so this BZ is now fixed.
Closing this issue now.
