Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-17621) Usability and aesthetic problems with the table view UI
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2017 22:42:42 GMT
Andrew Purtell created HBASE-17621:

             Summary: Usability and aesthetic problems with the table view UI
                 Key: HBASE-17621
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-17621
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Andrew Purtell

HBASE-15675 changed the display and formatting of the table view in the master UI. After this
change by default regions are sorted lexiographically by encoded region name, which has no
correspondence with ordering in the keyspace. Previously entries adjacent in the region list
would be adjacent in keyspace too. This made it easy to locate boundaries for split and merge
requests. This is a big step backwards for usability. For anyone who wants to manage splits
and merges (after HBASE-17609), unless they have memorized what encoded names correspond to
the adjacent regions of interest, they first have to check the box named "ShowDetailName&Start/End
Key" and resort the lists.

Related, naming that element "ShowDetailName&Start/End Key" is very poor aesthetics.

Related, the checkboxes are right of the description text, which is an unconventional design.
In most UI designs, checkboxes appear left of the description text.
Related, following that element is an inexplicable string "+ + + + +"
