Description Will Gordon 2017-11-07 15:45:52 UTC
Description of problem:
When viewing Monitoring > Events in a cluster's web console, there is no Date column, providing no context for when events occured.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OpenShift Master: v3. (online version
Kubernetes Master: v1.6.1+5115d708d7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create events (e.g., launch a new app)
2. Browse to https://console.<cluster-id><project-name>/browse/events

Actual results:
Only a time column which could be from 2 weeks ago, or yesterday

Expected results:
Provide a data column, or provide the date when hovering over the time column to provide context.

Comment 1 Samuel Padgett 2018-09-11 15:30:12 UTC
Typically events have a 2 hour TTL. It's possible to change that, but it seems like setting it to days or weeks is not a good idea. I think in most common cases time is actually sufficient.

Having said this, this is fixed in the 3.11 admin console and 4.0 converged console where we show a full date if the event is older than 10 minutes and an unambiguous timestamp on hover.
