Subject: [Engine-devel] Options for embedding Cloud init features into VM dialog - Need
There is a current feature to embed cloud init configuration which was originally part of
the Run dialog to be part of the create/ Edit VM dialog. This presents a challenge in
terms of good display of the hierarchies of information since the VM dialog is already
having subtabs stacked vertically. Please find here (http://www.ovirt.org/UX/cloud_init
alternate concepts of how we might represent all the levels of hierarchy from the VM
dialog sub tabs to the cloud init categories and the content ( which is also nested
sometimes) for each.
I have provided brief explanations of each concept and I would like your feedback on these
... esp with regard to feasibility. The general goals that govern the various concepts are
- Correct representation of the hierarchy
- Not overloading the users with too much info and cluttering the screen
- Not utilizing the same UI paradigm ( like expand/ collapse) for different types of info.
For example, we have categories of info where the fields are distinct from each other and
then we have times where the user is able to add multiple instances of the same object
type - e.g NICs and have the same set of fields be defined for each instance.
Your feedback is appreciated.
