Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 847066
[RFE] After new VM creation, select this VM in the power user portal
Last modified: 2016-12-04 15:39:52 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?
