Could you please attach a screenshot or video demoing what is going on?


Comment 3 Cyril Coupel 2017-11-21 14:27:09 UTC
That is easy: there is no dynamic control availlable for this item. a screenshot wil just show you that there is no dynamic switch when designing the dialog.

Comment 4 Chris Kacerguis 2017-11-21 14:36:06 UTC
Hi Cyril,

I wasn't sure what UI this was referring to (based on the description I wasn't sure) so the Screenshot was to help me figure that out.  That said, you said "a screenshot wil just show you that there is no dynamic switch when designing the dialog" so that is no something the SUI can do, so that indicates this is an OPS - UI issue.  So, I'll send the ticket there.

Have a good one!

Ruslana, can you reproduce this and make sure we have scenarios around it assuming this is in your FA.

Comment 8 Dave Johnson 2017-11-21 20:43:52 UTC
Ruslana, also, is this a regression, was it working in 5.8.1 and/or 5.8.2

Comment 9 Greg McCullough 2017-11-21 21:28:27 UTC
This is an enhancement request.  We have never supported default values or setting the category at runtime.  Since the default value cannot be specified it means the user must select an item so visibility has a limited use case.

Comment 14 Greg McCullough 2018-03-09 13:23:11 UTC
The class for category and tag entries is exposed through the classification model here:

This would allow a standard drop-down to expose tagging data.

For example:
category = $evm.vmdb(:classification).find_by_name("location")
=> "location"
=> "ny"

=> "New York"

=> "/managed/location/ny"
