Issues with migration status messages #1045

Still working with @fdupont-redhat to determine the exact fixes here, but what we're observing:

In places where a status message is looked up in an i18n table (, which is used for task.message and task.options.progress.current_description), if the string coming from the API is not present in the list of expected messages, we will get one of the following instead of the actual message:

  • the string "VM migrations stalled" (probably put in place to prevent long error strings from breaking the layout)
  • a blank string.

In either case, we should:

  • stop hiding unexpected strings, and figure out the right way to display them (maybe if it could be too long it should go in a popover, or maybe we just display it as-is inline)
  • update the list of expected strings to include any new ones.

It also seems like the task.options.progress strings we use may need to instead reference task.options directly instead of the progress hash, still discussing that with @fdupont-redhat .

This bug (the blank string case) can be reproduced using the database dump named status-message-issues from my collection.

For reference, this is the current set of status messages we display for each VM in the plan details list view. Right now we display:

  • Above "Status:", task.message followed by cancellation status if present, but it is run through the i18n table and if unknown, replaced by "VM migrations stalled" (probably not desired)
  • Below that, next to "Status:", we show task.options.progress.current_description but we run it through that i18n table and if unknown, it comes out blank (bug)
  • In the popover next to "Status Detail:", we show task.options.progress.states[task.options.progress.current_state].message
