Clicking file handle in Job Manager opens search for file in GCloud storage
- 2 comments
This is not quite a feature request but more of feature commentary.
Clicking on a file from the Job Manager (screenshot below) opens a search for the file in Google Cloud Storage (screenshot) rather than opening or downloading the file itself. I think that the latter may be more in line with user expectation. More so, clicking on this line should open a new tab rather than redirecting in the current window as it is an external link. What do you think?
Otherwise, thus far it seems pretty neat!
Screenshot 1: Viewing inputs in Job Manager
Screenshot 2: Direct result of clicking on the hyperlink, a search for the file in GCloud Storage.
I completely agree with both those points.
1) Any re-direct should be in a new tab
2) Pop-up previews are much better than redirect.
As #1 is a lot easier to patch, it's very much next on our backlog. The preview functionality is also part of the longer-term plan, but the focus for the next few weeks is primarily on adding entity/submitter and more such details to Job Manager, as those are existing gaps in information that don't exist in the Terra UI yet. Hope that makes sense!
Very nice, thank you Ruchi :)
