Subject [jira] [Commented] (NIFI-3781) Controller Service Config Dialog 'View Details' button feels confusing and inconsistent with Processors
Date Tue, 22 Aug 2017 14:02:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-3781?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16136826#comment-16136826

Matt Gilman commented on NIFI-3781:
-----------------------------------

[~rmoran] The reasoning behind the original approach is that actionable things (configuring,
enabling, disabling, etc) are located in the right most 'actions' column while read-only items
(details, bulletins, etc) are located in the left most 'moreDetails' column.

> If a Processor is running, the user is able to right-click and "View Configuration."
If stopped, the user is able to right-click and "Configure." With Controller Services, however,
there is always a "View Details" (which is essentially the same as View Configuration). There
is an "Edit" button only when the service is disabled.
> Often, I find myself clicking the "View Details" icon when a service is disabled and
trying to configure the service, but I can't because it is a read-only view.
> I recommend removing the "View Details" icon from the left-hand side and instead have
the right-hand side offer either "View Configuration" or "Configure" based on whether the
service is enabled or disabled. I feel this is more consistent with how Processors work.
