Description Bryan Kearney 2019-03-08 21:41:00 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1610478 +++

Created attachment 1471888 [details]
Incremental content view screenshot

Description of problem:
Incremental content view populates the description field with the included errata and affected packages as per the following RFE.

However, the display of this information consumes a lot of space on the page and it needs reformating by adding some option to expand the complete text or something similar.

Attached the screenshot for reference.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Red Hat Satellite 6

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sync the repositories
2. Apply the errata from UI -> Content -> Errata -> Select the hosts
3. It will create a new incremental content view and errata will be applied
4. Now check the UI -> Content -> Content Views -> Check the description field.

Actual results:
Description field looks irregular & not correctly formatted

Expected results:
The description field should have any expand button in case of large text or information in it.

Hi Rox,

Does UX or patternfly have a recommendation for how to handle table cells like the one in the example provided?

In past, we'd use something like ellipsis to truncate the content and user would see full details on hover.

Brad -- We have been looking at tables that have expansion options, but in this case I feel these high level tables description would be best truncated with full details on hover (this is what we usually do in the application). Additionally the full list of details is available when one dives deeper into the content.
