Description Vojtech Szocs 2015-11-25 16:01:23 UTC
BZ 1172390 introduces table header context menu that allows users to control visibility and position of individual columns for all main & sub tabs.

This RFE completes the feature by persisting above mentioned column settings in browser's local storage, similar to persisting other client-side settings.

Implementing this RFE is non-trivial due to interference with existing column width persistence mechanism (which uses column index).

Vojtech - how much work is left to complete this?
Will we be able to push that in 4.0?

> Vojtech - how much work is left to complete this?

The "column control menu" is already implemented, its code is further improved by patch https://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/54186/ which also addresses RFE BZ#1285499 to utilize drag'n'drop behavior.

Given that RFE BZ#1285499 already has a fix, this RFE is the only one to fix in order to consider "column control menu" UI feature as complete.

ETA 3-4 days, just need to ensure that existing "persist column widths" mechanism works well with ability to re-arrange column positions.

> Will we be able to push that in 4.0?

Yes, I believe so.

Verified in
ovirt-engine-4.2.0.2-0.1.el7.noarch
ovirt-engine-webadmin-portal-4.2.0.2-0.1.el7.noarch

The visibility, position and width of individual columns are persistent across sessions or page reloads. The settings are stored in browser's local storage.
