Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-1435) Error on dialog leads to having to re-enter data
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 12:09:16 GMT


Pranav Saxena commented on CLOUDSTACK-1435:

Mike , 

These kind of  validation checks on the data are done at the API layer and not at the UI layer
. So when you entered the erroneous data and clicked OK , then the API calls were triggered
 , the logic at the API layer realized that that something was wrong with the cluster data
and hence threw an exception which was rendered by the UI due to which you happened to see
that message "Failed to add storage pool" . I agree , this message could be improved in the
backend API code . But what you are suggesting here is not possible with the current UI implementation
. The kind of checks which UI can perform deal with the format of the data or it's not an
empty field or something of this sort . 

I agree that this forces the user to go back and re-enter data but at this stage the user
has to bear this pain .

Marking it as won't fix !

Thanks for raising the issue though .

>          Components: UI
>    Affects Versions: 4.0.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1.0, 4.2.0
>         Environment: Chrome on Mac OS X 10.8.2

> I went into the "Add Primary Storage" dialog.
> I left the default selection for Zone, Pod, and Cluster (although it was my mistake to
not change the Cluster).
> I entered a name, protocol, etc.
> I clicked the OK button.
> The "Add Primary Storage" dialog was closed and an error message was displayed.
> Some problems here:
> 1) The error text was fairly useless ("Failed to add storage pool").  There was no indication
of what I entered incorrectly.
> 2) I don't think we intend on using the term "storage pool" in the GUI.  We probably
should have said "primary storage."
> 3) To fix the issue, I had to re-open the "Add Primary Storage" dialog and fill in all
of the info again (correcting the Cluster).  It would have been way nicer if this error message
would have appeared on top of the "Add Primary Storage" dialog.
> I believe this kind of a problem is prevalent in the GUI...not just a problem with this
one scenario.
